Helping Your Child With Homework
For all humanities subjects we would encourage you to support students to read, listen or watch the news daily so they are aware of current events. We will give lists of any television programmes or series which support topics being undertaken in lessons as and when appropriate.
Students would benefit from visiting any local or national museums and exhibitions to develop their historical knowledge. We would encourage students to read around the subjects they are being taught including fiction books.
