Learning through Geography at Greenleas - WE HOPE YOU LIKE OUR NEW PLAYGROUND MAPS!
Geography is a valued part of our curriculum at Greenleas Primary School.  It provides a means of exploring, appreciating and understanding the world in which we live and how it has evolved.  Our children start by learning about the geography of their local area and progress to an understanding and knowledge of the wider world.
Geography stimulates curiosity and imagination and we aim to build on the child’s ‘personal geography’ through studying a variety of places and themes.  The children are taught to describe different geographical areas and also explore the impact that humans make on the geography of our fast changing world.
With a renewed commitment to fieldwork and the use of maps we aim to support the following statement, by the Chief Executive of the Geographical Association, Alan Kinder;
“From earliest times, we have used maps to make sense of our world, from the small scale to the global. Maps are central to geographical learning and understanding, and they can tell stories about where and who we are, our perception of place and our hopes for the future.”
