Geography

 

 

Geography is the study of the earth’s surface and it explores the relationship between the earth and its people. It helps children to understand the human and physical forces that shape the environment. Children are naturally interested in their immediate surroundings and they also want to know about places beyond their direct experience.

Our aims in Geography are: -

  • to increase knowledge of countries in Europe and America, concentrating on environment, key physical and human characteristics and major cities;
  • to be able to name and locate countries of the UK, geographical areas, topographic features and key characteristics;
  • to stimulate pupils’ interest in their surroundings and in the variety of physical and human conditions on the earth’s surface, including aspects such as climate zones, rivers, volcanoes and land use;
  • to foster their sense of wonder at the beauty of the world around them;
  • to help children to develop an informed concern about the quality of the environment and the future of the human habitat and thereby enhance their sense of responsibility for the care of the earth and its peoples;
  • to identify latitude, longitude, the equator, the hemispheres, the tropics, the Arctic and Antarctic, and time zones.

We include the opportunity for children to undertake fieldwork as part of their work in Dunchurch, Rugby and  North Wales. North Wales is studied through a residential visit.
