Impington Village College

Humanities

Where We Teach

The Humanities Faculty is housed in 6 rooms in the H block, which has its own computer suite. We also have other rooms around the College: E6 and E12. Each room is equipped with a PC and data projector.
Staff can often be found in their teaching rooms or the H block at break and lunchtimes.

KS3 Humanities – the ICE programme

The ICE (Impington Curriculum Experience) programme has been designed to improve students’ learning. It takes the main concepts of the IB learner profile and aims to embed these within students at an early age. Units and lessons are designed to do this, whether in Geography, History or EPS(RE). Therefore we focus on key skills such as research and writing skills, and source or data interpretation.

Year 7

We start Year 7 by studying the main ways of learning in Geography, History and RE. Students will, for example, learn about maps and graphs in Geography; use sources in History and review different ways religions claim to learn about god. 

Year 8

In Year 8 we begin by looking at how our world has become much more interconnected, such as through the food industry or the spread of religion (such as Islam). Units to appear later in the year include ideas about how slavery in the Americas has affected us today, the structure of the Jewish religion, and how we can protect ourselves against flooding.

Homework:

No homework is set for Humanities in line with the college policy to encourage basic skills of literacy and numeracy in the early years of secondary education. There are projects available for students who particularly enjoy Humanities and who want independent study.

KS4

Subject Areas:

IMAG0372Business Studies

At GCSE level (specification OCR) students learn about various topics such as marketing and business finance. We also learn about the wider economy - nationally, Europe-wide and globally. Students find out what a recession is, how jobs can be created to fuel economic growth, and much more.

20150116 1439362EPS

The EPS course deals with issues of life and morality and also the study of religion. The course is very closely linked to the world we live in and it is essential that students appreciate what is happening in the news on a daily basis. Students are expected to share opinions, so it is essential to be able to argue your point! Students are also asked to consider different perspectives and why people may have opposing views. 
In Year 9, students begin their GCSE (specification AQA A) looking at Life Issues, such as Animal Rights and Prejudice. This then continues into Year 10 and 11 with topics such as Life after Death and Medical Ethics. The two religions chosen for study [Christianity and Islam] have influenced life in Britain in differing ways throughout History.

P7010069Geography

Students choose their options in Year 8 and begin the GCSE Geography course in Year 9.

We follow the AQA course and this comprises a mix of human and physical geography with a focus on students applying knowledge and understanding often to unfamiliar environments. Topics we cover include natural hazards, physical landscapes in the UK and large scale ecosystems such as tropical rainforests and arctic environments. Students also have the opportunity to study a range of human topics linked to changes in urban environments, how we can manage resources to meet growing demand and how national economies are changing.

Students have the opportunity to undertake human and physical field work on the North Norfolk coast and use this as an opportunity to develop key geographical skills which are examined as part of their overall GCSE award.

P1020225History 

In History during Year 9 in the Autumn term, we study the First World War. To learn some GCSE skills, we begin the GCSE Course after Christmas, starting with Nazi Germany.

The GCSE course (specification OCR A) also covers Germany 1919-45, Public Health 1800-1914; the making of the Americas and a local study on Framlingham castle. In lessons students will be covering the key content and practising the different types of exam questions, to maximise the chances of success. We also offer a trip to the Battlefields.
