Geography

VISION STATEMENT

For all our children – whilst with us and throughout their lives – to be inspired and fascinated with the world, feeling confident, knowledgeable and skilled to further explore their curiosity for the immediate and wider environments, further understanding the Earth, its interconnections, people and changing features.

Local Area Week

What a week it’s been throughout the school! The children have loved having the opportunity to focus on the local area, both past and present.

 

We’ve looked at the history and geography of the surrounding area, including the area’s involvement and contribution to WWII, mapping out and locating features and buildings, looking through maps over time and seeing how and why land use has changed – and so much more!

Making Comparisons

A part of our Get Set Go morning activities, the children have been completing some Geography-based activities. For this one, children were asked to draw a picture of someone fishing. We then learnt about fishing in the River Gel, Sudan. The children were surprised by how different it is over there. 

Zayne - "The water seems dirtier and not as deep. They also don't have fishing rods."
