The Oxford English dictionary describes ‘humanities’ as ‘learning concerned with human culture’. At Chadwick High School we will address this mainly through history. Pupils will study half termly topics based on the QCA schemes of work for KS3. Where possible units of work will be based on issues linked to current affairs or to students’ interests. This will allow for the fact that KS3 students are in different year groups and come from different schools.

The first half term we are studying the achievements of the Islamic states 600 – 1600.

Chadwick High School KS3 pupils enjoy 2 x 50 minute lessons of Humanities each week.
