Geography is all around us. Through the increase of globalisation, trade becoming more important and climate change, Geography is becoming more and more important. Therefore, at Falcons School for Girls, Geography is embedded in our curriculum as well as standalone lessons.
The syllabus varies from year group, allowing the children to make the most of every topic they study. In every year group from Year 1, our curriculum encompasses physical geography stretching from climate to mountains to rivers, and human geography, both which allow us to travel around the world studying different case studies such as El Salvador in Year 6, China in Year 2, the Americas in Year 5 and the UK in Year 1. Our teaching uses different elements of ICT from using google maps to explore areas, beebots to explore direction and the internet to allow the children to research different topics.
Towards the end of a child’s time at Falcons, we equip the children with the knowledge and understanding which forms a good platform for when they move schools.
We hope Falcons Girls will be responsible role models, through our Eco Warrior system, and with the knowledge that they gain at Falcons Girls, they will transfer it into their everyday learning, whether Geography or not.
