GEOGRAPHY

Geography is concerned with the study of places, the human and physical processes which shape them and the people who live in them.  We encourage our children to investigate the world around them, from the local to the global.

When possible we use fieldwork, first-hand experience and secondary sources to locate and investigate the geographical features of a range of places and environments, including our own locality, a contrasting area in the UK and a different locality in another country.

The study of our school locality forms an important part of the Geography curriculum, in the Early Years and Key Stage 1.  Pupils are encouraged to use appropriate geographical vocabulary to promote their thinking.  As the children progress through the school, they are introduced to geographical themes and the study of places.

Through our programmes of study the children learn about and develop informed views and opinions on local, national and global issues such as sustainability, climate change, and their impact on people, places and environments in the past and the present.

The school actively encourages recycling.
