Geography

Geography is an important subject as it helps children to understand the world around them and gives them certain skills and knowledge which have a wide variety of applications in everyday life
Geography is taught throughout the school by the classroom teacher up to Year 4 and then by a specialist teacher in Years 5 and 6.

The teaching of Geography is achieved using three approaches; whole-class teaching, individual consolidation exercises and collaborative group work. Students are encouraged to communicate their findings in a variety of ways, thereby enabling a greater understanding of the many different applications of Geography.

Many trips are made out of school in order to consolidate the learning completed in the classroom. Some examples of trips are: Year 5 visit the New Forest Museum and participate in various role-playing activities in the Verderer’s Court, Year 4 visit Stubbington and learn about a variety of coastal processes and Year 2 visit Beaulieu and study different types of transport.
