Welcome to the Geography page
Developing an understanding of the wider world
Children learn to appreciate the world around them by using enquiry skills to develop their knowledge and understanding of places, patterns and processes, environmental change and sustainable development.
Our topic-based curriculum that runs throughout school features many geography focussed topics.
Here are some examples of the work we do;
Children in Nursery and Reception explore the local environment.
Children in Years 1 explore Birkdale our local village.
Children in Years 2 found out about life in Africa exploring the climate and school life.
Children in Year 3 learn about Greece and Scotland.
Children in Year 4 study Italy and South America.
Children in Year 5 learn about Egypt, the water cycle and countries and cities.
Children in Year 6 explore natural phenomenons and Southport.
Throughout the school we will be developing our map skills
The wider opportunities that we offer to the children are vast and include a variety of trips and visiting local restaurants for food tasting. Yum!
Children in Reception have been learning about where they live.
Below are some of the animal homes made by the children in Year 2 during their 'Habitat' topic.
Reception went on the train to Freshfield Squirrel Sanctuary to talk explore their local environment.
