Geography

In Geography at LDSM, we aim to nurture and develop a love, curiosity and understanding of our world and its people. 

 

Children study, location and place knowledge, human and physical geography and geographical skills and fieldwork. 

 

We achieve this through a variety of different topics including: volcanoes and earthquakes, major climate zones, biomes, rainforests, mountains, coasts and landscapes. 

 

As their knowledge of our world grows so will their ability to challenge, question and reflect on their own viewpoints.  Our aim is for children to become globally aware of their impact on the planet and take responsibility for their actions.

 

Our curriculum outline for history and geography is below. Year groups usually focus on geography in the Spring term; other topics also weave geographical skills and knowledge into their content. For example, Year 6's World War 2 focus involves lots of map work when considering the impact on the local area. Year 3 and 5's history studies also look at how our local area has changed in relation to the historical periods studied.
