At St. Edmund’s we encourage children to develop an interest in the surrounding area as well as in the wider world.
We develop the children’s geographical knowledge and skills in many ways, including practical activities such as map reading, local walks, examining photographs and objects from locations around the world.
We study the location of places around the world, climate, customs, land use and many other aspects of human and physical geography. As well, pupils learn about a country and its culture during International Week.
The Geography curriculum is supported by numerous field trips and workshops ranging from visiting Windsor Castle in Reception -comparing different localities and lifestyles- to a residential field trip in Year 5 -orienteering, map reading and studying land use.
We look for ways to bring geographical understanding to life to ensure a solid foundation for future study.
