Geographical studies develop children's interest in the World around them. They learn about physical features and the effects of human activities on the landscape both close to home and in locations that are more distant. The skills they are taught include mapping skills, fieldwork skills, enquiry skills, recording skills and Computing. First-hand experience is greatly valued. The children make use of the school and its grounds, the local area and visits are made to other areas and industrial locations. In Year 6 the children have an opportunity to participate in a residential study visit lasting 3 days.
