At Upland Primary School, we believe the humanities subjects hold great importance in our children’s holistic development. Many cross-curricular links can be made between the humanities and other subject areas, making the learning meaningful for pupils.
We strive to ignite a curiosity and interest in our children to find out about the world around them, both past and present.
As a school, we deliver a high-quality Geography education. Children are fascinated about the world around them and enjoy participating in practical activities that develop key geographical skills. Our school trips, such as the Year 4 river study in Horton Kirby, further extends pupils’ understanding of both physical and human processes.
History at Upland Primary School provides pupils with a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Pupils are taught historical concepts and key events from the past through engaging and thought-provoking lessons. The methods of historical enquiry are developed as pupils progress through the school.
Within Upland Primary School, we ensure children are made aware of differing cultures and beliefs. Pupils are taught to respect and value the diversity that exists within our country, which is supported through visits to local places of worship.
