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.

In Geography this week, Giraffes have been learning all about the continents of the world. We started the week with a Beat the Geographer quiz, and used our knowledge of the continents to match them to their shape. It was super tricky, but we are really confident now! #dcpscore #dcpsgiraffe #dcpstopic #dcpsgeography ... See MoreSee Less

The Whales have started a new Geography topic this week, learning all about the United Kingdom. The children have been using their geography skills to look at maps, find different cities and look at the features of our beautiful coastline #dcpscore #dcpswhale #dcpsgeography ... See MoreSee Less

Some geography in Elephants today. We were looking at continents and trying to recognise them by their shape. We had a great lesson with beat the geographer and a lovely reminder of a continents song. We matched the continents to their correct name and then created a world map jigsaw. Brilliant work everyone. #dcpselephant #dcpsgeography #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Year 3 are using their investigative skills to become super sleuth journalists today. We are finding out facts about Earthquakes to support our newspaper article writing.

Elephants have been learning all about Earth Day. We looked at our impact on the planet, thinking about what happens to our rubbish and how much energy we use. We took our learning outside to see the impact we have locally and talked about what we could do to protect our planet. We produced some fantastic posters showing what we have learned. #dcpselephant #dcpsstem #dcpsgeography #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

The Dinos carried out some fieldwork this afternoon looking at human and physical geographical features in our school environment. We are quite the experts now. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsgeography #dcpscore #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

The Whales have been celebrating Earth Day this morning. This takes place every year on April 22nd. We did some reading about how important protecting our environment is, learning about how we can help the Earth and then we created fact sheets about the day. We also had to come up with a mission to help our wonderful planet! #dcpswhale #dcpscore #dcpsstem #dcpsgeography ... See MoreSee Less
