Subject leader: Mr Keane
We are fortunate to be situated in exceptional school grounds and are continuously striving to develop and improve our outdoor learning environment. At our Middleton Tyas site, we boast various gardens, an orchard and outdoor learning area, all of which enables children to experience geographical inquiry first hand. Geography enables pupils to investigate a variety of people, places and environments at different scales in the United Kingdom and abroad, including the local area, then find out about different environments and the people who live there. Our pupils begin to learn about the wider world through creative teaching strategies as well as exploring opportunities to carry out geographical inquiry inside and outside the classroom. Children are encouraged to ask geographical questions and use geographical skills and resources such as maps, atlases, aerial photographs and ICT.
