Geography Lead by Mrs Whitford
By the time children leave Merdon at the end of Year 6, all will have an appreciation of their local geography and environment, recognising where in the world they live and how it is similar and different to other communities and places globally.
Our children will have a secure understanding of the Earth's physical and human processes, including those found within Chandlers Ford and our school grounds. They will be able to apply geographical language to describe them, ask questions and explain them both in physical and human terms. Children at Merdon will be building their minds for the future; they will learn about the world about them through enquiry questions. These will promote critical thinking, debate and a continuing awareness of the ever changing issues they will be faced with now and in the future.
Through their geographical studies, when children leave Merdon, they will understand that they have a voice that they can be the change by supporting communities locally and globally and through being educated about how they can be the difference when considering environmental issues.
