The study of geography stimulates an interest in and a sense of wonder about places, people and the environment. It helps young people make sense of a complex and dynamically changing world and how society, the economy and environment combine to bring about change. It explains where places are, how places and landscapes are formed, how people and their environment interact, and how a diverse range of economies, societies and environments are interconnected, and examines natural resources and their sustainable use.
Geography teaching and learning at Langton Green Primary School has been developed to ensure the delivery of the geography curriculum as laid down in the National Curriculum document of 2014.
The teaching and learning of geography takes place through our dynamic and inspiring creative curriculum. Much of the learning takes place through Independent Learning Activities (I.L.A.s) and some through discreet skills teaching.
The children’s learning is enhanced by use of our wonderful school grounds and Forest Schools. Both visits and visitors also provide an invaluable part of the children’s learning, for example Kew Gardens and Horton Kirby Environmental centre.
