At Harry Gosling the humanities subjects are an important and prominent part of school life. The humanities subjects are taught as part of unit topics so that so that cross curricular links can be made. We believe that this approach allows children to make links between their learning and ensures that skills and knowledge are embedded. Through teaching active and engaging lessons, which promote inquiry and interpretation skills, pupils are encouraged to be creative and inquisitive. As a school we endeavor to ensure that our pupils are given a breadth of experiences to inspire and excite them, from becoming Saxon invaders for the day, to wading in the Thames! We hold a number of events throughout the year to promote our humanities work and showcase the talents of our pupils, including Culture Week, The Big Draw and Black History Week.
Religious Education is taught in accordance with the Agree Syllabus adopted by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The content is not based on the teachings of any particular denomination, but is multi-faith. Pupils learn about values, beliefs and traditions of different world religions and their impact on society.
