The Rowans AP Academy

Inspiring change for a brighter future

Humanities

Students in KS3 are given the opportunity to learn about the world around them, and where they can investigate the relevance and importance of Humanities on their own lives.

We offer a practical, student-led investigation approach by delivering exciting lessons which will stimulate enthusiasm to learning about history and geography.

Each term we alternate the subject from History to Geography. Learning is focused on a variety of tasks which will allow pupils to develop thinking skills and independent learning. During these lessons, students will be encouraged to look at the world around them, past and present, and analyse how and why the world is the way it is, and how they have a role to play in how the world will work in the future.

History:

During our History lessons we will look at a range of topics; World War 1 and 2, The Vietnam war, The Holocaust, Anne Frank, Women in history, Black History Month, Black Lives Matter, The Tudors, Pre-historic life and many more.

Geography:

During our Geography lessons we will look at a range of topics; Urbanisation, Population, the 7 continents, Volcanoes, Earthquakes, Tsunamis, map work, The Slums, Climate change, travel and tourism and many more.
