At Dalestorth we follow the 'Inspire' scheme of work for our Geography planning. The subject is planned and taught in our year group teams and follows a rolling programme, linked wherever possible to the topic of that half term.
Geography is seen as a key focus for our teaching and learning and is one of our focus subjects this academic year. We aim to ensure that each child at our school can access a rich and varied Geography curriculum, which, wherever possible will be taught in conjunction with other subjects.
Each class will do one Geography project per term as a minimum and every academic year we will have a Geography focus week. Our key skills to be taught are:
The UK and locality
Knowledge of the World
Subject specific vocabulary
One trip a year will also be linked to the Geography curriculum, incorporating either fieldwork or orienteering.
Week beginning 12th February will see the beginning of our Humanities Week. We will be concentrating on many subjects within that week, Geography being the first on Monday 12th February. Our theme for this is 'Our World'. We will be looking at global issues including global warming, recycling and saving energy. Our work will be displayed on this page of the website and also within school in the ICT suite.
Dalestorth Around the World
We were thrilled to get so many postcards showing whereabouts you had travelled over the summer. You have been to some great places and it was really interesting to see the different countries people had been to and the experiences you have had. Thank you for participating in this, we will be doing something similar this year.
