Geography is taught through class topics, connections being made across different subject areas where ever possible. Teachers work in teams and plan together in order to ensure equality of opportunity across the mixed age classes.
Children within the lower and upper school study the same topics i.e. Class 2 and 3 work together and likewise Class 4 and 5, differentiation is provided by referring to year group expectations for geography. Topic planning is archived in order to avoid undue repetition within forthcoming years.
Learning outside school is a valuable addition to the children’s educational experience. Children in Year 1 to 6 will experience at least one visit per term to enhance their learning in the Foundation subjects including geography. This may be visit within our immediate locality or it may involve a coach journey further afield. The school is reliant on parental contributions in order to support these visits.
A termly topic overview is sent to all parents during the first week of term. This is available to view by clicking HERE.
