Prep School

Geography

Geography is an excellent way of developing curiosity in the environment in which our children live and the wider world that is Planet Earth. We stimulate an interest in and a sense of wonder about places, people and environments to help our children make sense of our changing world.

We take our children outside wherever possible, to explore the school’s natural surroundings and its ancient wood and parkland. We also visit geographical sites of interest nearby for field trips such as Durdle Door on the Jurassic Coast and the New Forest National Park.

In Year 1 and 2, our children learn about their local environment and begin to compare this with contrasting localities around the world such as desserts, the Aztecs and volcanoes. From Year 3, our children extend their range of geographical skills through enquiry-based topics such as weather, coasts, National Parks and recycling and the environment. 

Our broad-based syllabus helps our children develop their knowledge and understanding through challenging and relevant learning experiences to enhance their skills and analysis.
