Children learn Geography through first hand experiences in real life settings!

Geography is challenging, motivating, topical and fun. In our diverse society children need, more than ever before, to understand other people and cultures. Geography makes a major contribution to children's physical, intellectual, social and emotional development. In short, geography matters!

Why Geography matters?

We asked our pupils to put their red hats on and describe how geography

makes them feel. We used their responses to make a word cloud.

This week we have been celebrating International Week. Each year group was given a European country and a learning question to explore. We had to research our country and find its location on different maps and globes. We had to learn about their human and physical features and facts about the country. We also found out what traditional dish was from the country and we then had a go at making our own. We shared the traditional dish with our partnered year group and then had a party with entertainment that we had learnt from our country. 

Year 1 are learning about their local area. We walked to our local post office to post a letter to Dan Cohen

Year 5 have had a fantastic time at forest school in our local woods
