Geography

Our curriculum is exciting and engages geographical experiences in a way that makes the subject come alive for children. Places have significance and meaning for children. We recognise, value and celebrate young children’s personal geographical experiences and interests as a useful starting point in the classroom. This is supported and encouraged by children asking geographical which builds on their innate curiosity of the world. We adopt a geographical enquiry approach during which children can be encouraged to identify important issues that matter to them, collect geographical data and draw conclusions from the findings for themselves.

Our Geography lessons link with other subjects though our Curriculum. This way we ensure that it has a purpose and ties in with other experiences. We ensure that school trips and real life experiences tie in with our geography lessons, providing children with a contrast to our urban setting at school.
