Geographical skills are taught progressively from Nursery to Year 6 in line with the current curriculum. Geography is taught with the aim of inspiring pupils with a curiosity and fascination of the world we live in.
Geography is concerned with the study of diverse places, people, resources and both natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. It constantly explores the relationship between Earth and its people.
At All Saints’, children study their local area and contrasting localities in the UK and other parts of the world. They are encouraged to enquire and question, learning through experience as they explore their own environment, beginning at school and expanding further afield as they get older. We value fieldwork as an integral part of the curriculum.
A concern for the environment is fostered through everyday action such as recycling and conservation of water and electricity, as well as whole school events such as Walk to School Week and Sustainability Week. The implications of human action on habitats, both for animals and humans, are considered through much of our topics and cross-curricular links are made with other subjects such as Science and Literacy.
