Geography is challenging, motivating, topical and fun. In our diverse society, children need to understand other people and cultures, more than ever before. Geography makes a major contribution to children's physical, intellectual, social and emotional development.
At Melling Primary School, we believe that becoming a geographer enables a child to develop a fundamental understanding of themselves and their place in our world. Geography inspires in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Pupils will develop knowledge about diverse places, people, resources, plus natural and human environments. They will gain an understanding of the Earth's key physical and human processes. As the children progress through school, they acquire the ability to understand the interaction between physical and human processes. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the framework and approaches that explain how the Earth's features, at different scales, are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
Keep an eye out for our Geography Champions on the playground at break time. Our wonderful PTFA have provided funds for a brilliant geography trolley full of geography related games, atlases, maps, compasses etc.
Thank you to Zach (Y4), Eleanor (Y4), Scarlet (Y4), Ava (Y4), Andrew (Y4), Olivia (Y6) and Connie (Y6) for volunteering to be our geography champions and giving up a break time to do this.
We are all very excited about Melling Geography Day on Thursday 6th June! Each class will have the day learning about life in another country - looking at culture, food, education etc. We will then have a celebration assembly to share with other classes what we have learnt.
