We are keen to encourage a desire for discovery and questioning. Through Geography we work to develop children’s awareness of the world around them. Our teaching of geography develops the children’s knowledge about different places and the world in which they live. The school grounds and local area provide a valuable resource for the children to explore and investigate environmental influences.
Wherever possible, connections are made between subjects to support children in their learning between different curriculum areas.
Themed units of work based on the National Curriculum Programmes of Study for History and Geography are planned to provide broad and balanced learning experiences. Through these varied topic areas learning in subjects such as Art and Design Technology is incorporated.
Through this integration of knowledge, skills and understanding for different curriculum areas, teaching and learning time can be more effectively used and thus provides potential for greater depth and breadth of learning.
