Welcome to our Geography page!
The teaching of Geography at Middleforth is integrated into our Creative Curriculum, making meaningful links to other curriculum areas where appropriate and providing pupils with a variety of learning opportunities.
We have devised the curriculum coverage with consideration of the National Curriculum 2014 and Lancashire County Council Key Skills (KLIPs). Geography teaching is about developing an understanding of our world, through experience, investigation and learning from secondary sources. Geography helps children to gain a greater understanding of the ways of life and cultures of people in other places. This will help to enable children to take responsibility for their role in society and to develop a caring attitude towards others, animals and plants in our environment.
Geography is concerned with the study of places, the human and physical processes which shape them and the people who live in them. Children study their local area and contrasting places in the United Kingdom and other parts of the world. The study of the local area forms an important part of the geography taught at our school and activities are planned to build upon the children's knowledge and understanding of the local area.
