Through the Geography curriculum the children at Elmtree are inspired to develop their knowledge of, and become curious, about the world around them.


Geography teaching includes an understanding about places, people, resources and environments. Georgraphy topic work also enables children to collect, interpret and communicate data relating to both physical and human features.


Children learn to use maps, atlases, globes, photographs and diagrams to identify the UK, continents, countries and oceans.  They are also introduced to simple fieldwork.


In all classes trips and outings are closely connected to topic work.  These can include longer trips to places like the Aquarium to look at sea creatures or zoos and farms to experience animals in their own environments. In addition there are often shorter walking excursions to investigate the local community and buildings.
