Denfield Park Primary School

Learning and Growing Together


Humanities at Denfield Park


The Humanities curriculum encompasses the History and Geography subjects and is taught through themed units throughout the year, all with a specific title.


Within these themes we aim to create independent learners, who can research, find answers and who take increased ownership of their learning journey.  In lessons they should be able to make effective links between subjects, thus making learning increasingly relevant and enjoyable for the children.  This in turn provides opportunities that allow them to celebrate their successes and experiences within the wider school community.


The theme for a term will encompass History or Geography and develop children’s curiosity and fascination for the world we live in.  It will also develop global knowledge and they will gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
