History, Geography and RE are taught in a cross-curricular way at Riversdale. All classes have specific topics that are taught across a term/half term and within these their humanities lessons are topic related. These subjects are taught once a week; if a class has a history topic one term, they may have geography topic the next. In RE, in addition to the half termly topics, we also celebrate a range of religious and cultural festivals.
Classes regularly go on trips to complement their topics and these have included visiting The Ragged School, various places of worship and local environment studies such as The Thames. In addition, class assemblies will often focus on these subjects and thereby enhance their learning. The children very much enjoy these subjects, as they do fantastic projects around them for their half term homework, whilst many will actively research and share this with their classes and teachers.
