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.
We study the Year A & B topics, which you can find more information about in the links below.
Throughout the children's topics, the teachers will provide opportunities for the children to use the outdoor learning facilities and the world around them to deepen their learning.
EYFS Year A & B
Topics will vary depending on class interests.
The curriculum shall build upon children’s progress within the prime areas of learning (C&L, PSED & PD) and development and the following specific areas:
Children at the expected level of development will:
- Describe their immediate environment using knowledge from observation, discussion, stories, non-fiction texts and maps;
- Know some similarities and differences between different religious and cultural communities in this country, drawing on their experiences and what has been read in class;
- Explain some similarities and differences between life in this country and life in other countries, drawing on knowledge from stories, non-fiction texts and – when appropriate – maps.
