Knutsford Primary AcademyInspiring our children to be happy, successful learners and responsible citizens
February 2 2015



We take a lively approach to humanities, believing that investigating, debating, enquiring, and dramatising will stimulate children’s interest and develop their understanding.

We aim to encourage in the children a spirit of curiosity and wonder about the world around them, both near and far. We expect that their growing knowledge and understanding of the immense variety of the physical geography of their own, and other places in the world, will foster a recognition that all environments should be cared for.  Through a developing understanding of the interdependence of people and places, and opportunities to engage in problem-solving activities to encourage understanding of the effects of environmental issues (local, national and global), we aim to prepare the children for positive global citizenship.

Children get first-hand experience of geography in the real world through exploring the local area in Year 1 and during residential visits to Phasels Wood in Year 5 and the Isle of Wight in Year 6.

We  promote cross-curricular connections between the humanities, literacy, design and technology, the arts and P.S.H.E.
