Welcome to Humanities

 

Walker Primary school aims to inspire children's curiosity and fascination about the world now and what it was like in the past!

 

Geography

 

Throughout Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, pupils are involved in investigating a variety of people, places and environments both locally, and further afield in the United Kingdom and also abroad. Geographical enquiry is undertaken inside and outside the classrooms and pupils are taught key skills such as; observing and recording, asking geographical questions, analysing evidence and drawing conclusions. Children are provided with opportunities to develop knowledge of globally significant places both terrestrial and marine, focussing of their characteristics through a range of topics. 

 

History

 

Like geography, history is taught within specific cross curricular themes with clearly identified learning objectives. Pupils learn about the lives and lifestyles of people in the past, including those of significant men, women and children as well as events from the recent and more distant past in our own area, as well as further afield in Britain and across the wider world. Chronological understanding is central to an understanding of history and our expectation is that as pupils move into Key Stage 2 they will be expected to be able to place events, people and changes into correct periods of time as well as using dates and vocabulary appropriately and with accuracy.

Year 3's Amazing Collage work on London City Scape!

WOW Year 2, great research and work put into your castles! What a creative year group you are!

Year 3 were assessed on their knowledge of the UK at the end of the term. They did so well! Well remembered Year 3.

Year 4- Samba dancing and drumming workshop

'This morning, we had an absolutely fantastic samba drumming workshop. This is part of our 'Peace and Justice Week' in school. We all had a chance to play an instrument and we learnt how these percussion groups follow the guidance of their conductor. Did you know that a samba group in Brazil would have approximately 500 percussionists?' Miss Hawkins
