Geography

 

Geography is planned and taught as part of our creative, cross curricular approach to learning. During their work in geography, children develop, use and apply the National Curriculum key skills across a range of contexts.


They are also given opportunities to carry out surveys and fieldwork. In line with our Geography Policy, children learn about and compare features of different localities, collaborating with partner schools. We encourage our pupils to think as global citizens and to take responsibility for their impact on the environment through reducing waste, reusing and recycling.

Many field work opportunities take place in the local area but the children also have regular opportunities to work with experts in Marsden, Ogden
and Jerusalem Farm. The rivers workshops are a highlight for children in Year 6 and they return again to look at Climate Change, Children in Year 1 enjoyed a Science based workshop on plants, animals and minibeasts in their environment and Year 2 children visited Judy Woods to improve their map reading skills.
