At Mill Rythe Junior School we provide a high-quality geography education to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Geography is taught creatively with opportunities for learning both in and out of the classroom. Each year group will complete at least two units of geography throughout the year.
In geography, we equip pupils with a diverse knowledge of places, people, resources and natural and human environments. The children deepen their knowledge of the physical world by exploring different climate zones and biomes, rivers, mountains, coastlines, volcanoes and earthquakes. They explore how humans use the land around them, as well as how natural resources are distributed. This is linked with climate change and the impact we have on the world around us through rich discussions in class.
Throughout their time at Mill Rythe, the children develop their knowledge and understanding of and beyond the local area to include the United Kingdom and Europe, North and South America. They develop their geographical skills, including using and understanding Ordnance Survey maps and fieldwork techniques.
