Geography is taught on a weekly basis throughout a designated half term. In the Foundation Stage, it is incorporated into the Understanding of the World provision. Children are encouraged to develop their enquiry skills by finding out more about communities, people and places. In Key Stage 1 the children move onto fieldwork, investigating our local area and studying geographical skills further afield as we look at oceans and continents as part of our curriculum. In Key Stage 1 we follow the National Curriculum for Geography.
Our children develop a range of skills throughout the Geography curriculum which include locational knowledge, geographical skills and fieldwork and place knowledge.
We also place a huge emphasis on being environmentally friendly and encourage the children to look after our school and surrounding area. We have a designated Eco Area where our children can work together to maintain and improve our environment.
Our Reception and Year 1 children have been very busy learning about weather conditions and recording their own weather forecasts.
The Year 1 and Year 2 went on a sound walk to investigate sounds in our local environment.
