Geography at the Prep is taught as part of our creative curriculum approach to teaching and learning. The range of topics covered encompass all aspects of the Geography National Curriculum and are both skills and knowledge based.
In Key Stage 2, Geography is taught as a lesson in its own right, however links with other subjects are made when appropriate. Practical, hands on and interactive lessons are taught ensuring all learners are able to access the experiences available. More able learners are extended and challenged; lessons are carefully tailored to suit the variety of needs and interests that each child brings.
Skills such as map reading and atlas work, scale and direction are taught and ICT is integrated into all aspects wherever possible. Fieldwork also plays an integral part of our studies.
