Our children enjoy an interesting and varied Geography curriculum. We have a diverse representation of many cultures and nationalities within our school. We celebrate this by organising events such as our ‘Celebrating Cultures’ day. We use a variety of imaginative and interesting topics to explore the world around us, both near and far. Across the Key Stages, we prioritise outdoor learning and fieldwork by exploring our local area within Luton and beyond.
In Key Stage 1, children experience Wow days such as learning about the traditions and history of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. They will also learn about the continents and oceans of the world, gaining knowledge and understanding of their wider environment.
In Key Stage 2, children enjoy cross-curricular links which include topics based around fascinating work on Volcanoes and Rivers. There is a progression of skills as we see children develop and deepen their understanding of the world, encouraging children to increase their ability to ask questions and find varying ways of answering them.
We encourage children to develop a sense of belonging in this amazing but ever-changing planet they are all part of. We want them to know, admire and gain a sense of responsibility for their immediate and wider environment. We regularly cover wider environmental issues, such as climate change (looking at forest fires and its impact for example), within our weekly Picture News assemblies.
