We want geography to provide a way of looking at and understanding our world by focusing on what places and the environment are like, why they are important to us, how they are changing and how they might develop in the future. We use outdoor learning to explore the local environment.
Each year group will build on previous knowledge through exciting topic based learning; resulting in a secure understanding of key facts about our planet and their local surroundings. As they progress, they will begin to develop a deeper understanding of such areas as human impact; why differences exist both physically and socially and how they might continue to change. They will also develop their fieldwork and map skills.
Geography is concerned with the study of places, the human and physical processes that shape them and the people who live in them. At Abbey Meads Primary School, pupils learn and study Geography in a variety of exciting ways and develop an understanding of the local and global environment. It enables children to understand their place in the world and the importance of their actions.
They will learn skills under the headings of:
Human and physical geography
Geographical skills and fieldwork
Geography Units Per Yeargroup
