Geography forms a key part of the school’s cross curricular approach. As children progress through school they develop skills of both locational and place knowledge, human and physical geography; geographical skills and fieldwork.
Children are encouraged to develop a lively and questioning awareness of their local surroundings. Their interest and knowledge of the variety of physical and human conditions will extend from their local environment to the national and international scene.
Within the places studies, children will acquire the skills necessary for the interpretation of geographical information and for geographical enquiry. Walks, guided visits, regular surveys and, at the upper junior level, residential visits to York and Todmorden all contribute towards a growing awareness and appreciation of the child’s environment.
