At Chalton Lower School we take a creative and cross curricular approach to our Humanities curriculum so that the children become fully immersed in each of these subjects and come away with a secure foundation of knowledge. We believe creativity is crucial in enabling the children to achieve high standards and to acquire key skills.

In both History and Geography, enquiry is key, and children are given opportunities to ask questions and debate viewpoints in order to give them a more deepened understanding of topics. Within our topics, we teach children about significant figures and ‘hidden heroes’, with an emphasis on celebrating diversity and ensuring our Humanities curriculum represents the diverse world we live in. Through our Humanities curriculum the children learn to think for themselves, become adaptable and learn key skills for life.
