Through a topic based approach children are given the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of Geography. Children learn more about the world around them and develop a sense of wonder and exploration.
They explore information about various places through the use of maps, atlases, published materials, online sources, learning walks and communication with people from other countries through email and written letters.
We learn where places are, how they are formed and how people interact with their environments; including the exploration of cultural, social, economical and environmental connections on various scales.
Each class has their own Stanley Bear so that children may take with them on their family journeys. They will use this opportunity to learn about different countries or environments that they are visiting and record information in a travel journal. Additional drawings and photographs are encouraged to help teach their classmates about their adventures upon returning.
