Geography at the Pre-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 1, Geography and History are often closely linked and are sometimes taught alongside each other. For example, in Year 1 as part of their ‘Splish, splash, splosh’ topic, a coastal study is undertaken with fieldwork experiences on Lincolnshire’s coastline. Victorian seaside holidays are also considered as part of this integrated style of learning.
Skills such as map reading and atlas work, scale and direction are taught and ICT is integrated into all aspects wherever possible.
