Experience, Excel and Enjoy
At Pinehurst Primary School we have developed a geography program which encompasses our local environment and beyond!
We have made a geography relevant to the children by drawing on their interests and linking our topics to geographical information wherever possible.
Please see below for the curriculum overview for Geography, we use a scheme called Oddizzi to support our delivery of Geography. Please see this link for more information on Oddizzi http://www.oddizzi.com/.
The delivery of Geography has been developed to suit our context, giving the children the opportunity to explore their local surroundings and the beauty and intrigue that Liverpool and beyond offers. We believe the opportunities the geography curriculum offers gives a breadth and depth of knowledge which will excite and engage our pupils in developing the geographical skills that children can apply to the real world.
Some of the aspects the children will cover are
Looking at aerial photographs
Compare and contract 2 localities (Anfield Vs Caribbean)
Where in the world is Banaby bear
Local field work
Understanding the make up of the UK
Identifying seasons and warm/cold parts of the world.
Using maps, atlases, globes etc
compare and contrast localities including physical and human geography
