Willenhall Community Primary School

Connected Curriculum


At our school the History and Geography curriculum are taught in a focus week of study, which the pupils know as ‘Humanities Week’. The week’s study always includes a trip, a visit outside of school or a visitor in to work with the pupils, as a motivational and stimulating experience to enhance their learning.

The Foundation Subjects curriculum is designed to follow the New National Curriculum programmes of study. The lessons focus on the teaching and development of geographical and historical skills, ensuring progression through the year groups. We aim to make learning enjoyable, exciting and engaging, through the use of experiential activities and active learning strategies.

Our Religious Education Curriculum follows the Coventry Agreed Syllabus. Our pupils learn about the different religions and learn from the religions.

Pupils study the religions Christianity and Islam in depth and learn in less detail about other religions, Sikhism, Hinduism, Judaism and Buddhism.

It is our aim to develop an understanding of the similarities between different religions in order to nurture understanding and tolerance.

“Religion presents a story which gives humans a pathway to follow on how they should live their lives”.
