Geography

From September 2014 Knightlow has been using the exciting Prospectus Planning framework to implement the new National Curriculum requirements. The planning includes all the foundation subjects including Geography. The themes  have enthused the staff and pupils alike and with titles like Disaster, Wild Water, Extreme Survival, Indian Spice and Get Out of my Swamp you can see why! The syllabus includes the subjects taught through innovative ways such as drama, individual research, stories and experiments and these techniques encourage the children to learn independently in a modern and creative way; giving a new slant to investigating geographical ideas and it is all very child friendly.

Lots of practical observation and fieldwork are embedded in the geography elements alongside planned educational visits to develop the children's understanding even further.

 

International Week - June 2015

There were so many activities going on building on the Reception and Year 5's Stories 4Change book launch which took place on the Thursday. Throughout the week all the classes were involved in a whole range of global activities including, dressing up in  international costumes, having visitors talking about the cultures and languages of Norway and Spain, as well as map making, to name but a few.
