Geography

In Geography, we aim to help our children gain an understanding of the world in which they live. This includes the school’s environment which is beautifully suited to developing geographical skills. Our children are also given the opportunity to discover about cultures other than their own and places which provide a contrast to their familiar surroundings. Studies are enriched by enjoyable visits to such places as Martin Mere or The  Blue Planet Aquarium.  Recently our year 5 and 6 class visited the Southport Eco Centre where children were given the opportunity to learn more about natural resources.  Leaders at the Eco Centre were very impressed with the behaviour and pleasant attitude of the children who all took part with enthusiasm.
