Our vision for Geography at St George's


‘Let all that you do be done in Love’ 1 Corinthians 16:14

The example of Jesus Christ and the Good News that he brings inspire St George's school to be a place of hope and a caring and inclusive community in which we all love to learn and learn to love.

Geography develops children’s knowledge and understanding of places around the world and the people who live there. Through an enquiry-based curriculum, children at St George’s will explore local and global links making geography relevant and purposeful to their personal lives. They will develop a sense of curiosity through practical activities both inside and outside the classroom. Their learning will be linked to the whole school Challenge Question and to quality texts where possible.

St George's 6 principles for Geography

6 principles

Geography throughout St George's

Nursery have been exploring their local environment and developing their vocabulary based on the features.

Year 1 have been asking questions to find out about different places and collecting data during fieldwork.

Year 3 were looking at clean and dirty water, rivers and how they can help those in need of better sanitation. They went on a walk to the river stretching their noticing muscles and developing their vocabulary too.

Year 5 were joined in class by their parents to establish what they already knew about the rainforest and to discover the devastating impact that the palm oil industry is having on the environment. 

Reception have been looking for examples of beautiful features of God's world. Unfortunately they saw lots of litter and discussed how they could help improve their local area.

Year 2 have been Agents for Change as they researched the environment and visited Marten Mere wildlife park to learn more about the effect that litter and pollution can have.

Year 4 have been researching Fairtrade and campaigning for Hyde to become a Fairtrade town in the future. They asked some members of the community for their opinions on Fairtrade.

Year 6 have been looking at volcanoes and earthquakes. They have created some great examples for homework and enjoyed watching their models erupt!
