What do the children learn when they study geography? They learn about places and people; physical geography and human geography. They learn about continents and countries as well as the oceans, rivers, deserts or mountains on our planet. Our children also investigate how people live in different parts of the world - the different languages, cultures and traditions. There’s more to geography than just maps and atlases! Geography is also a great way for the children to think about how we impact our planet. At Northside we teach geography through a creative curriculum which means lessons link into class topics; these topics change each half term and children focus specifically on geography every other half-term. Geography also crosses into lots of other subjects including English, Maths, Science, Computing, History and even Religious Education. Fieldwork is an important part of the curriculum and there are opportunities for each year group to explore the local area. Some classes also visit Golders Hill Park where they can take part in orienteering and learn about maps and compasses.
