Geography @ Denbigh CPS

Subject Lead: Miss Smith

The Geography curriculum at Denbigh aims to provide children with a range of cross-curricular opportunities that are closely linked to each year group’s chosen topics. Topics change on a termly basis for every year group through Foundation Stage to Upper Key Stage 2. The aim is to show progression and a development of geographical skills throughout the key stages.

We aim to provide children with a greater understanding of their locational and place knowledge, understanding of physical and human geography and a chance to develop their fieldwork skills through exploring their environment.

Through a variety of learning experiences, including educational visits, children develop a sense of their place in the wider world whilst gaining an understanding of the places around them in their local area, including our school. Children enhance their geographical skills through using and interpreting a range of maps, globes and digital mapping on iPads as well as creating a range of sketches.

We strongly believe that children should have an understanding of how humans can affect their environments over time and use this information to make comparisons between different places. Eco Day and International Day provide children with opportunities to explore global issues and others parts of the world.

We are enjoying our Geography unit in Year 2. This afternoon we have been using maps to plan a route around the school. We used compass directions and road names to describe our routes to our friends. #dcpsdragons #dcpsgeography ... See MoreSee Less

Year 3 lizards are having a fantastic Egyptian day.
We have looked at mummification and even mummified a tomato. We made a clips video to show how to do this. Check out an example of what we have done, made by one of our year 3

The Dragons have been exploring their own continent this afternoon. We really challenged ourselves by trying to work out the country from the outline. Not as easy at it seems! #dcpsdragons #dcpsgeography ... See MoreSee Less

The dinos had a great afternoon exploring their own continent of Europe. The tricky part was working out which country each outline belonged to. Portugal was a step too far it seems!
Great geographical discussions though, using compass directions and plotting a journey line through different places and across different oceans. We have learned so much.

Year 5 braved the winds this afternoon to put their map-reading skills to the test at the Rising Sun Trail Challenge. We had to follow the 4 mile orienteering trail around the park to find all 16 markers within a given time limit. It was a great opportunity for us to develop our leadership and problem solving skills too. I bet there are some tired legs tonight! #dcpsdolphins #dcpswhales #dcpsgeography #dcpspe #dcpslotc ...

Year 3 lizards have had a great cross curricular PE lesson. We used our teamwork skills to problem solve a way across the hall with a limited amount of hoops and an ever increasing team size.
Following that, we worked as a team to solve the mystery map puzzle to find that we had a map of Denbigh to put back together. It was really tricky.

Lizards have had a magnifique Francais lesson today. We have been using our atlas to find the countries in Europe and then using our research skills to find the names of the countries in French. We labelled the map in French. Voila!

The dinos are exploring the continents of the world this afternoon, locating them on a world map and labelling them. We will be finding out some amazing facts about them too, including the longest river, how many countries are in each continent and the population. Ask us what we have learned when we get home.

Year 1 Panda class had a wonderful World Book Day! They took part in a range of Peter Pan themed activities and had lots of fun! We designed our own island on Neverland, went on a treasure hunt, walked the plank and stole lots of treasure. We also loved our Reading for Fun Challenge where we enjoyed half an hour reading in the library.
