Geography develops pupils' understanding of the world in which they live through the study of place, space and environment.
Whilst Geography provides a basis for pupils to understand their role within the world, by exploring the locality and how people fit into a global structure, the subject also encourages children to learn through experience, particularly through practical and fieldwork activities.
As a school we subscribe to Digimaps which is a digital map service. It enables the children to study maps in Geography lessons or planning actual routes that they will then walk, mapping a route and adding any photos or notes onto a map for later reference. The children are also able to compare old maps and look at how areas have changed over time. Below are some ideas about how Digimaps can be used at home. If you would like to access the school's Digimaps account then please speak to Mrs Hoskins.
