Welcome to Humanities at Marshfields School. My name is Miss Epathite and I am responsible for this department.
As teacher of Humanities my role is to deliver lessons on History, Geography and RE to all of Key Stage 3 and a History qualification to some students at Key Stage 4. The lessons aim to allow students to:
- Develop an awareness of the World around them recognising similarities and differences of locations and cultures
- Identify and describe key events throughout British and World History and how they have shaped the Britain/World we live in today
- Recognise own and others’ beliefs and values
- Develop research and analytical skills
- Promote a desire to ask why
Each student will develop their literacy and numeracy skills and be provided with opportunities to develop their computer skills too. At Key Stage 4 students are encouraged to develop their independent and workplace skills. Students are encouraged to think for themselves and use their new knowledge outside of the department.
I am passionate about bringing the past back to life and for all students to develop a sense of belonging in the big wide World which we live. I strive for students to want to find out more and to develop their own reasoning for their thoughts and beliefs.
