Geography at Southey Green is ever changing in order to keep up with world changes. As we know, a child’s understanding of their environment shapes how they interact with the world around them and therefore, at Southey Green, we are focused on developing and delivering a first class Geographical Curriculum, tailored to the needs of our learners. We are building upon the expectation set out by the National Curriculum, in order to engage our children with the physical and human aspects of Geography.
We aim to teach a wide range of skills; from using atlases and digital mapping tools to locate the UK and other countries in the world, to being able to describe the climate zones and economic activity of a country.
Where possible, we take the children outside of school in order to undertake fieldwork activities. This may include a walk around the local area, visits to a coastal town in order to compare locations and using map reading and compass skills.
