About Geography


At Merdon the teaching of Geography is taught through topics with each year having at least 2 Geography led topic per year.  Each Geography topic is presented in an enquiry form with a key question or statement shared at the beginning of the topic.  In addition, each topic also has a locational focus resulting in the pupils 'travelling the World' as they progress through the school.  During the topic, pupils have the opportunity to discover more about their Geographical focus and develop their skills before using their learning to reflect on the initial question/statement.  Pupils are also regularly presented with locational fluency activities to help build their sense of place.
Geography is all around us and can easily be learnt and explored at home. Have a look at the 'Geography Fun' page to get some ideas.
Geographical learning doesn't stop when our children leave school, adventures continue and begin at home too...
