Please see Mr Cook's end of Lent term message:


Geography is the study of the earth's landscapes, peoples, places and environments. It is about the world in which we live, and its ever changing nature.


Prep children are encouraged to further their knowledge and levels of understanding by learning about a wide variety of topics. Geography helps them to see the world from differing perspectives, whilst enabling them to understand larger global issues.


As a subject, Geography is unique in bridging the social sciences (human geography) with the natural sciences (physical geography), and children are given the opportunity to explore both areas within the diverse curriculum on offer. An understanding of the environment and sustainable development helps children to think about their place in the world, and their rights and responsibilities to others.


The children travel the globe in their learning, exploring South America, Asia, Europe and individual countries within Africa. They learn about weather systems and how they impact on our daily lives; about some of the most amazing natural phenomena; discover the 'Restless Earth'; look at ways in which the human race has impacted on the world. These topics give just a flavour of some of the interesting, thought-provoking and stimulating teaching in the Geography syllabus.


Geography will challenge, stimulate and push the boundaries, to enable us all to fully appreciate the wonderful and amazing world in which we live!
