Longcause Community Special School Learning for Life


Welcome to the Humanities Page


We integrate the subject areas of History and Geography into our topic work. We use the skills from the History and Geography National Curriculum to deliver a topic that is purposeful, relevant and engages our pupils.   Pupils access these topics through a range of different tasks and activities including trips and visits, visitors into school, using the local area as well as class based learning.

Students learn about history and geography through specific lessons, as well as taking part in lessons that have these skills embedded in other subjects.  Teachers work to ensure an even coverage between these two areas, as well as to use a variety of methods to engage the students.
