Humanities at Haybrook College
Our humanities curriculum is planned in a way that enables our pupils to learn, revisit and apply knowledge, therefore providing some breadth but also depth. We can’t teach our pupils everything as many have not had consistent educational experience, but reduce the impact of this, we have selected themes that seek to inspire pupils to teach them reasoning, problem solving skills, to question and analyse and see links, understanding use and effect. The work undertaken has been planned to guide pupils to revisit and reinforce skills also introduced in other subjects e.g. from English to describe and explain, from Maths to use data and coordinates.
At Haybrook our RE curriculum is designed purposefully to introduce pupils to the key concepts underpinning religions and beliefs. Visitors and visits provide a lived experience of religion and beliefs. Pupils are encouraged to think about their own values. – what is important to them. The aim is that pupils leave Haybrook having gained fundamental knowledge of all the major religions, compared them and explored the influence they have on individuals, culture , behaviour and life. Further rigour is delivered by providing our pupils with opportunities to consider philosophical and ethical questions.
Seek to enable our pupils to build a bigger picture of the world and to locate themselves within it, and to find out about places in the world in order that they can start to develop knowledge and understanding of the events and contexts that happen there.
