Humanities #LlanHumGoals

Welcome to our

Humanities Pupil Voice Page!


Our Mission

- Improve our knowledge on diversity and see what we can do to help our community.

- To encourage more outdoor learning and look after our local environment.

- To have fun outside and enjoy our 'cynefin'.


Summer 2

We looked back at our aims and we evaluated them and this is what we think.



Aim 1 Improve our knowledge on diversity and see what we can do to help our community.

We feel we have really done this in teh school. We enjoyed I wonder week where we invited guests from different religious groups. Next year the guests will do workshops and we want to do some dancing and food tasting. We have enjoyed starting Caffi Cynefin this year, we were able to invite the local community to come to the school and spend some time with us. We have also enjoyed assemblies about different people from Little Big Books.


Aim 2 To encourage more outdoor learning and look after our local environment.

We think that we have really done this target. If we look on Twitter and Instagram we can see that all the pods are takingpart in outdoor learning. Dawn has come in and has done some outdoor learning with us. We have less screen time and we spend more time outdoors.

Aim 3 To have fun outside and enjoy our 'cynefin'.

Again we think we have really acheievd this target. Looking at twitter all the pods are using the outdoors especially during teh Summer and they are having more fun.


From SDP


T4 -  Improve the diversity of the curriculum, ensuring that learning reflects Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic perspectives. (3.1). 

Planning has impacted up on all teachers’ focus on the need to ensure literature is diverse to reflect and promote diversity.  As a result, planning shows that all teachers are considering this when choosing their literature. Leaders have redesigned the template for Pod Project Overviews to include mandatary and statutory elements for parents.   This ensures that all parents have access to all the information that underpins our curriculum planning.  All teachers send these out termly.  The head teacher leads weekly assemblies using the “Little People Big Dreams” books.  These focus upon human rights and the need to respect and celebrate diversity in our world.   All staff engage in “I wonder week” where pupils are given opportunities to engage with visitors representing a range of faiths and cultures.   



Summer 1

What is going well?

-We have enjoyed doing Easter coordinates to reveal a mystery challenge.

-We enjoyed showing the world religions on a map.


What are we going to improve?

-We would like to do more mapping, like mapping places we have been.

-We want to do a map work challenge of the school.

-Many of us don't know how to use a map and we would like to learn.

- We would like to track the weather, i.e temperature, rainfall, cloud coverage.

Spring 2022

This term our Pupil Voice group #LlanHumGoals have met to discuss what has gone well and what we can do next term. We believe that our Matthew's House video was very successful and we enjoyed promoting the donation and would like to do this again in the future.

Pupils discussed the SDG IQ they completed at the start of this term and felt that this helped them better understand the SDGs. Next term we would like more links to SDGs in Big Question and in other books. Pupils are looking forward to their next topic and feel there will be plenty of opportunity for good Humanities lessons. 

A big thank you to our Humanities group for all their hard work this term!

Autumn 2021

This term our Pupil Voice group #LlanHumGoals have met to discuss what has gone well and what we can do next term. We discussed how we could promote and support Matthew's House going forward next term. We also discussed Christmas and how we could donate any unwanted gifts.

Pupils discussed how Humanities is being taught in their Pods, different IQs they have completed this term and what we can do to improve them going forward. 

A big thank you to our Humanities group for all their hard work this term!

News from #LlanHumGoals

Thank you all so much for the continued support with Matthew's House this year. It has honestly been a huge achievement to give back so much to our community in a strange time.

This term our Pupil Voice group #LlanHumGoals have met to discuss what has gone well and what we can do going forward next year.

All pupils have agreed that we are learning much more about Humanities through a variety of different ways.

A big thank you to our Humanities group for all their hard work and dedication this year.


April 2021


We have received a lovely letter from our friends at Matthew's House thanking you all for the incredible support and donations you have shown us so far this year.

Please take time to read the letter and be assured that your donations are incredibly appreciated now and in the future.

Thank you again.

Miss Walters and #LlanHumGoals

December 2020

Llan Hum Goals

We have met up to discuss the successes of our term and what we can do in the coming term to continue to promote Humanities within our school and the wider community.

Harvest 2020

We were extremely happy that this term our Harvest day was a massive hit in our Pod's. We had so much fun and would really like to plan a day like this again next year.

Matthew's House

We are so grateful for the continued donations to Matthew's House, even after Harvest.

We have decided to start a '0 waste' campaign to ensure that nothing goes to waste and everything can be used/re-used. We will be promoting this after Christmas, so if you have any unwanted food (non-perishable) or toiletries after Christmas you can send them to our food bank.

Dragon Clothes Bank

Thanks to all who have been dropping off and filling up or clothes bank! We have had 2 pickups this term, which is excellent. 

If you are having a sort out before Christmas don't forget to bring the good quality clothes and shoes to our clothes bank which is opposite Mrs. Whitehead's office window. 

Have a very Merry Christmas and stay safe,




Llanrhidian Humanities

A Big Thank You.

We are very happy to share with you all a thank you letter from our good friends at Matthew's House. 

We would all like to thank you for these incredibly kind donations throughout the year.



Autumn 2020

This week #LlanHumGoals have met to discuss all things Humanities. 

We have decided to continue to support Matthew's House again this year. If you can, please help us support this great cause by donating any of the items on the list. Thanks to all those that have already donated!!

To help to bring funds into our school #LlanHumGoals have made it their mission to promote our Dragon Clothes drop-off bin - this is situated in the yard by Mrs. Whitehead's office. Did you know that the school will get £50 for every full clothes bin?

The members of #LlanHumGoals have informed Mrs Walters that there is a lot of Humanities based activities taking place during IQ, challenge reading, and choice and challenge. Da iawn!!

Have a great Autumn.


How to support Matthew's House.

Target 1
 Develop more opportunities for the development of RE skills across the school

We enjoyed having more RE especially assemblies from Open the Book. We also enjoyed taking part in learning about Matthew’s House a Christian organisation that collects and provides food and clothing for the homeless. We enjoyed a visit from Swansea Mosque who were making a collection for the underprivileged in Swansea. We enjoyed knowing more about Islam as the guests explained about Ramadan, Eid and the Muslim religion. Alongside Father Tim we had planned another Multicultural Week with guests from different religions and faiths. During IQ Time we have completed an RE IQ so we can work on our RE knowledge and skills.
Target 2 
To develop critical thinking skills in pupils across all AoLEs

 We really like using the HABER so we can work on our critical thinking skills. We have liked sharing our ideas and what we think. We have called these Big Questions. We have uploaded videos to the school website recording answers to the Big Questions. 
Target 3 
To Develop a consistent approach of daily worship

We really like Kinship time which is what we have decided to call daily worship. Some Pods do this time during the end of the day or sometime during the school day. We like having time to think, reflect on the Big Questions.

This term we have been helping to promote Matthew's House.

Matthew's House and Matt's Cafe help to feed people in Swansea who cannot afford to buy food. 

We have successfully promoted our 'Festive Bank' to help encourage people to donate non-perishable food and toiletries. With your help we have donated over 20 bags of goodies!
