Geography 

At Albrighton Primary School and Nursery, we believe that a broad and rich curriculum is essential in the education of all pupils.  As a result, geography has a significant role to play in both our schemes of work and beyond.  We believe that the knowledge and skills that intertwine with geographical learning are vital in not only a child’s education, but also in their wider life. We understand that geography isn’t just a subject; it is a means to a child learning about their place in the world and how they, as an individual, can impact upon it. As a school, we are very lucky to have such a varied and interesting locality and we use our strong community links to enhance the curriculum and encourage a true love and curiosity for the whole world and everything in it.

Reception

In Reception, we have been exploring our new school grounds and going on treasure hunts to see what we can find. We have lots of fun on our visits to the Forest each week; we have been noticing lots of things changing throughout Autumn. 

Years 1 and 2

Years 3 and 4

We have been taking part in some field work, like an archaeologist! We used metal detectors to see if we could discover some hidden treasures in the school grounds. We checked the school grounds using ariel images to decide where we might find the most interesting things - we were not disappointed! 

Years 5 and 6

These photographs show us using an Atlas to identify the US states. Miss Evans also tested if we could identify features on a world map, such as the equator and hemispheres.
