Geography

Our Geography Leader is Mrs Gray.

Geography is part of our Creative Curriculum.

Geography

The children learn about their own community as well as contrasting localities in some depth. From the very beginning they also develop a sense of the wider world as they use maps, globes, atlases and ICT in their work. The school grounds and Harborne are used for practical field–work and environmental and economic awareness. From 1998 the school has had its own 'secret garden' which allows us much greater scope for on-site environmental education. We also plan day and residential visits for example, to Blackwell, the Lickey Hills and Bell Heath Environmental Centre.

 

We have a tradition of offering children in Key Stage 2 department extra curricular, residential visits to other places, for example Year 6 camp in Shropshire. These provide exciting opportunities to experience other cultures and environments at first hand.
