Geography

 

Geography is essentially the study of people and places. Using map skills Geography answers the age old question of "what's over there?" and gives children a better understanding of how where they live is part of the world around them. Geography provides opportunities for children to appreciate the link between human activity and the environment, providing an awareness of the part we all have to play in securing our future on planet Earth. We develop research skills looking at farming and industry, population growth and distribution.

We investigate how people deal with both natural disasters, which affect specific areas, and global climate change. We aim to encourage good research and presentation skills and continue to widen our teaching methods with our interactive whiteboards and computers to learn in a style that suits them but always meeting the requirement of the National Curriculum.
