Year 8 out and about with Humanities!

West Wittering 2Generally good weather blessed three recent days of Humanities visits. History, Geography and RE worked together to give each Year 8 student three visits that helped them develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of their local area. Geography took pupils to West Wittering beach, where, in collaboration with Harbour Conservancy staff they spent a full day looking at the processes, landforms and management of this fragile ecosystem. As well as developing a greater understanding of the features of a place we often take for granted, it also helped develop fieldwork skills, and data handling techniques.

History and RE ran a combined visit to Southampton. The RE part of the visit took students to either a Sikh Gurdwara or a Hindu Mandir. As well as supporting the outward looking Christian ethos of the School, the visit helped deepen understanding of different world faiths, providing a helpful foundation for their future GCSE studies. The History part of the visit took students to SeaCity Museum for an investigation of the Titanic, supporting their recent work on the industrial revolution. Students worked their way through a well-curated exhibition relating to all aspects of the ship, developing their research skills, and subject knowledge. This was a visit with added poignancy as it coincided with the search for the recently lost submersible with five people on board.

West Wittering 5My thanks must go to all of the staff involved on the days, and behind the scenes, who helped make the trips such a success.

Mr J Barnett, Head of Humanities
