Geography and the Environment
The teaching of Geography across the school provides a means of exploring, appreciating and understanding the world in which we live and how it has evolved. Our children have opportunities to explore the relationship between Earth and its people and develop a fascination for our planet and how to look after it. The children learn about locations within the world, similarities and differences between different places, human and physical Geography, as well as geography skills and fieldwork.
Environmental education helps to foster caring, responsible attitudes and inspires young people to take action in order to live more sustainably. Our environmental education is embedded within both Geography, cross curricular work and whole school learning led by our enthusiastic Eco Club. Opportunities are provided for children to attend forest school to develop an appreciation of the outdoor environment. Assemblies and initiatives led by the Eco Club further develop an understanding of how we as individuals can try to combat global warming.
