At Manor Field School we believe that all children should be given the opportunity to experience a high quality Geography education. As a result we have developed an exciting new curriculum which puts Geography teaching and learning right at centre. Throughout their time at Manor Field School, children will experience a range of Geography based themes which include a progression of Geographical skills, built upon year after year.
As young Geographers, our children will be able to make better, more informed decisions about how to live their lives now and in the future. Geography teaches children essential knowledge about the ever changing world around them and how to improve the world through social and environmental action.
"Geographic skills provide the necessary tools and techniques for us to think geographically. They are central to geography’s distinctive approach to understanding Earth’s physical and human patterns and processes" - National Geographic
We aim to give children a Geography rich education by using a range of different teaching approaches and enabling our young Geographers to learn through practical first hand experiences.
Geography is visible all around our school as our units are named after the World’s seven continents and our classrooms are named after cities from all around the world. When children arrive back at school every September, they will become immersed in Geography as they will learn all about the location, culture and traditions of their new class name.
