Curriculum

Humanities 

Welcome to the Humanities Department!

In Humanities lessons at  Limehurst Academy pupils study the three  subject areas of History, Geography and Religious Education.

We put particular emphasis on literacy, numeracy and  communication skills to reinforce learning in other subject areas.

When pupils arrive in Year 7, they are taught in mixed ability form groups for the first few weeks  to enable us to get to know them and their skills and abilities in the subject. This is achieved using a variety of data provided by the feeder primary schools and by assessing a range of tasks carried out in Humanities lessons in the early stages of the term. Once the pupils have been set according to their ability and support needs, they follow a series of modules and linked assessments over the course of the year. In Years Eight and Nine pupils continue to be taught in ability groups.

The Programme of Study at Key Stage Three has been designed to follow the National Curriculum and to prepare pupils for study at Key Stage Four.
