Geography develops pupils' understanding of the world in which they live through the study of place, space and environment. Geography at Tanworth is based on our Theme topic learning and lessons are created to be engaging, challenging and exciting whilst inspiring critical thinking to become global citizens. 


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. Children will learn about a mixture of human and physical geography and apply geographical skills and knowledge to their learning which they can carry through to life beyond Tanworth when exploring the world around them.






What do the children say about Geography at Tanworth?


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 Miss Hodges.
