Geography is taught within our topic lessons on a thematic approach. In teaching geographical topics, our staff ensure they give children the opportunity to:

  • carry out fieldwork including regular nature detectives visits to Melwood.
  • talk and communicate their findings in a variety of ways.
  • learn how places are similar and different, are linked to other places and to the wider world
  • learn about the physical and human features of environments and how we are influenced by different environments.
  • use digital resources and a range of secondary sources from our well stocked library.
  • carry out investigative work which facilitates questioning and explaining.
