Through Geography based topics pupils develop their knowledge of people and places to understand the physical, social and economic forces which shape those places and the lifestyles of the people who live there. They study the local area and issues and extend these studies into the wider world, so giving them a global awareness.
The children learn to use maps to locate cities, countries, mountain ranges, rivers, seas and oceans. They use atlases, photos and the internet to explore the environment of the countries they study. They then use the skills they have developed in literacy, numeracy and ICT to report and record their findings.
Children learn about the value of being eco-friendly and belonging to a sustainable society. Educational visits make the learning more meaningful and enjoyable.
