The area of geography studies forms the basis of a class’ topic and, wherever possible, closely aligns with a class main text. We teach children about different places in the UK and aboard as well as our planet’s human and physical processes, whilst developing their geographical skills (National Curriculum, 2014). We aim to immerse children in their topic through organising school trips and workshops. Additionally, we make purposeful, cross-curricular links with other subjects including ICT, History and English.
The Book Trust has compiled a collection of books based on the topic of our Environment: from Climate Change to Animal Conservation that encourage children to think about and discuss pressing issues. Click here to find out more.
