Geography

The Geography subject leader is Mrs Black. 

 

At Selborne C of E Primary School, we believe that all children are entitled to a broad balanced and relevant Geography curriculum.  It is our intent that all Geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people.  We believe that every individual should have the opportunity to develop and realise their true potential.  To ensure that this happpens, we aim to consistently provide learning opportunities for all children that offer challenge, intellectual stimulation and an enriched curriculum. 

 

Please see the documentation below to gain a full understanding of our Geography curriculum here at Selborne including the intent, implementation and impact which can be found in the subject policy.

 

 

Child initiated geography with Squirrels Reception Class.

One of the children became very interested in the map he had found in the classroom. After opening the map, lots of the children wanted to look and investigate. This led to plenty of discussion about the world and places the children had visited. We added bee bots to travel to different destinations and had a go at drawing our own maps too!

Rabbits Class - London and Selborne

 

During our London topic we also spent some time comparing London to Selborne, there were some similarities but lots more differences.

 

After we had compared them we had to create a map of a city and of a village, we used coordinates to create a key.

Badgers Class went on a Geography Field Trip to Gilbert White's Field Study Centre. They took measurements around the river and looked at the features of a river. They then completed some art work using the clay from the river!

The World's Kitchen

 

Otters have been looking at food from around the World.  We have investigated where our food comes from and how it gets onto our plates.  We have been using our geography skills by looking in at atlas' and maps to locate the countries that our food comes from.  The children are able to use the resources to identify the continents, countries within the continents and the capital city of a chosen country.
