Working Together for Excellence and Enjoyment

Geography

Geography is concerned with the study of places, the human and physical processes that shape them, and the people who live in them.

 

Children study their local area, parts of Telford, and localities in the United Kingdom and other parts of the world. They use atlases, maps, photos and the Internet to locate cities, countries, mountain ranges, rivers, seas and oceans. Detailed studies incorporate research to explore the environment and the economics of those countries. Geography helps children to gain a greater understanding of lifestyles and cultures of people in other places. Enjoyable and varied activities are planned to allow children to build upon their knowledge and understanding of geographical concepts. Where ever possible we try to form a cross curricular link.

 

The areas covered are done in a 2 year rolling program. Year A and Year B.
