LiveLoveLearnTogether we will soar to new heights

 

Hello and welcome to our Geography page!

 

The main aim of Geography within our school is to help inspire pupil’s curiosity, interest and fascination about the world around them. We also aim to help them gain a better appreciation and understanding of the variety of physical and human conditions on the earth’s surface. We aim to do this through planning fun and engaging lessons.

National Curriculum:

December 2017:

Within our World News topic this month, we have been looking at how Christmas is celebrated around the world. The countries we looked at were: Spain, Japan, Mexico, Australia, Germany and Scandinavian countries.

 

January and February 2018:

Our new topic this month will be Chinese New Year. Chinese New Year will be celebrated on Friday 16th February. 

As part of our Chinese New Year topic we had an amazing afternoon learning all about the traditions that take part on this special occasion. We had a fantastic time learning Chinese dances, making Chinese lanterns and discovering which zodiac animal we are. Have a look at out pictures below.
