HISTORY, NUMBERS, PEOPLE AND PLACES

THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT WAYS TO UNDERSTAND THE WORLD AROUND US. THERE ARE ALSO MANY THINGS TO UNDERSTAND IN THE WORLD AROUND US.

 

WE CAN LOOK AT NATURE AND UNDERSTAND WHY A RIVER RUNS LIKE A SNAKE, WHY PEOPLE CHOSE TO BUILD VILLAGES, TOWNS AND CITIES ALONG THEM AND HOW THE BORDERS OF COUNTRIES HAVE CHANGED OVER TIME TO BECOME THE WAY THEY ARE NOW.

 

IN SCHOOL THESE WAYS OF UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD ARE DIVIDED INTO DIFFERENT SUBJECTS.

 

THESE SUBJECTS INCLUDE:

 

  • GEOGRAPHY - UNDERSTANDING HOW THE BEHAVIOUR OF NATURE AND HUMANS WORKS TO CREATE THE LANDSCAPES WE LIVE IN, LIKE RIVERS AND MOUNTAINS OR VILLAGES AND CITIES.

 

  • HISTORY - UNDERSTANDING THE THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED IN THE PAST THAT MAKE US WHAT WE ARE TODAY, LIKE ARABIC NUMBERS, OLD GREEK PHILOSOPHY OR ROMAN LAW.

 

  • MATHS - UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD THROUGH NUMBERS, CALCULATIONS AND MEASUREMENTS, LIKE FOR BUILDING HOUSES THAT WILL STAND STRAIGHT.

 

  • POLITICS - UNDERSTANDING HOW THE GOVERNMENT MAKE THE LAWS AND OTHER AGREEMENTS THAT AFFECT ALL OF US AND HOW WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

 

OTHER SUBJECTS ALSO INCLUDE:

 

  • ART
  • BIOLOGY
  • CHEMISTRY
  • MUSIC
  • PHYSICS
  • SPORT (PHYSICAL EDUCATION)
