 The Humanities - History and Geography

The Humanities at Lynsted 

At Lynsted, our aim is to connect every element of learning through critical thinking and enquiry. We believe the content of our humanities curriculum is rich in knowledge, skills and is sequenced logically to ensure all children are able to fully submerse themselves in their engaging lessons. We have used Cornerstones, a platform which allows our lessons to have tailed content and meaningful progression across the year groups. Our school values drive our curriculum and serve as a starting point to encourage our children to become critical thinkers and promotes ownership of learning. d & Norton school

It is our intention that history lessons at Lynsted involves developing historical perspective through; wide and detailed chronology of historic events, to develop confidence in communicating understanding and explore enquiry based thinking and to begin deepen understanding of more complex issues and of abstract ideas.





Geography Intent at Lynsted & Norton school

 At Lynsted, we want our children to develop a rich understanding of the world they live in and develop their geographical skills in different contexts. We aim to link our learning in Geography to the rest of the curriculum so that the children can see clear links between different aspects of their learning. We use Cornerstones as the basis for our lessons which allows them to follow  a clear progression throughout the school, encouraging a creative, engaging approach to learning which excites and sustains children's interest.

We aim for Geography lessons to build on children's previous learning, encourage curiosity and exploration about human and physical geography so that children build up their understanding of the world they live in and how other people live.
