It has been eight weeks since school started. There were a lot of new things that we needed to adapt to. One of the new subjects in grade 7 is humanities. I think humanities is going to be an useful subject for the future (especially our jobs). Humanities is a really interesting subject because it covers both geography and history (this year). I can predict I’ll learn a lot and develop a bunch of knowledge by the end of this year. We’ve doe a summative test as well, which I’m satisfied with, I really tried my best and it turned out pretty good.

It is a piece of evidence for knowing how people felt during an event and their opinions. TO WHAT EXTENT CAN WE TRUST HISTORY?
