Humanities

At Latymer All Saints CofE we follow the National Curriculum, which focuses on providing the children with enriched activities that require the completion of research, practical and interactive tasks. This allows the children, across all Key Stages, right through from Reception to Year 6, to meet the learning objectives. In addition we believe that our learning is enhanced by the diverse educational trips and numerous workshops which take place every term; such as visiting the Greenwich Maritime Museum, Florence Nightingale, The Verulamium Museum, and Kew Gardens etc.

With the announced new Government changes, we are delighted to see world history reintroduced to the curriculum alongside the opportunity to study local history at all key stages. This is an exciting opportunity for all children to be exposed to the wider world.
