Our Geography Curriculum aims to enthuse children through a high quality curriculum, which facinates and engages their cuirosity about the world around them and the people who inhabit it. As children progress through our school, they will become more aware of the interactions between physical and human processes and of the formation of landscapes and environments. The purpose of our Geography curriculum is to develop children's geographical knowledge and skills that will provide the framework to help them to explain how the Earth's features are shaped, interconected and change over time.
In Class, teachers use PlanBee units which provide children with an array of exciting and engaging opportunities throughout the school. The Geography curriculum is taught over a two year rolling programme to ensure the children in mixed age classes are always provided with new lines of Geographical inquiry whilst ensuring important curriculum content coverage.
Out of Class, we are extremely fortunate to have our own Forest School. Children of all ages from Nursery to Year 6 enagage in weekly sessions with a fully qualified and experienced Forest school leader. During Forest School children explore a range of environmental issues and engage in a number of Geographical investigations.
As a school we have recently gained our Eco School status! Our children are activily involved in current environmental issues and are caring and considerate towards the environment. Children are empowered and motivated to drive change and improve environmental awareness in their school, local community and beyond.
