At Horbury St Peter’s and Clifton Primary School, we intend to instil the “St Peter’s and Clifton School Spirit” in all our children. The teaching of geography in particular encourages our children to value the importance of :
as they recognise their place in our school, community, country and world, and develop a fascination in the people and places both within and beyond our locality.
The monitoring of the standards of children’s work and of the quality of teaching in Geography is the responsibility of the subject leader. The work of the subject leader also involves supporting colleagues in their teaching, being informed about current developments in geography and providing a strategic lead and direction for this subject in the school. The subject leader reviews and evaluates planning annually. It involves creation of an action plan with regular, termly review.
Y1 asked Geographical questions to find out where Mrs Ward had been on her holiday. The children were great at coming up with questions and worked out that she'd been to the Seaside on holiday in Whitby!
In Year 2, we study Yorkshire Vs Kenya. The children are examining maps and looking for key human and physical features, such as the capital Nairobi and Mount Kenya. When then focused on answering some geographical questions, such as "what is Kenya like?" We had some great suggestions- such as "hot and dry" (but also with "a rain season!").
