Geography

Subject leader: Mr Keane

‘Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of all garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.’

Matthew 13 vs.31-32

Our entire curriculum, including Geography, is underpinned by the ‘Parable of the Mustard Seed’ and summarised by our motto:

 Together may we give our children: Roots to grow and Wings to fly. 

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.
