Welcome to the Humanities section of the School Curriculum. Below you will find links to "At a glance" guides to what is being taught in the subjects Geography, History, MFL and Religious Education. And a flavour of the sorts of learning experiences the children enjoy to build on and improve knowledge and skills.
Geography - our students take part in activities and find out information about our local area as well as some investigative learning on why Jungles are wet and deserts are dry. They look at maps from all over the world and identify countries, continents and oceans. There is also additional information and facts on climate change and the impact which the Corona-virus has had on it. To find out more about the Geography curriculum look at our useful "at a glance" guide here.
History - during history lessons children learn about a variety of periods throughout time. Year 2 have enjoyed learning about the Great Fire of London this term and in the summer year 6 will complete an indepth study of World War II. To find out more about the History curriculum look at our useful "at a glance" guide here.
Modern foreign languages (MFL) - We have changed our MFL curriculum and teach 1 language - French - so children make substantial progress and increase fluency. A 3 year rolling programme has been put inplace to increase confidence and language skills. We are currently on year 1. At home it is worth looking at Duolingo app which is free and is valuable for consolidating the children’s understanding of the French language. To find out more about the MfL curriculum look at our useful "at a glance" guide here.
Religous Education (RE) - here at Brompton-Westbrook we find out about the customs and celebrations of the major world religions. To find out more about the RE curriculum look at our useful "at a glance" guide here.
