Geography


We are Geographers at Parkhill Juniors.

Year 3

Year Three enjoyed learning about towns and counties in the United Kingdom. They then focused on Cumbria in the North West.   They used atlases to locate cities and developed their skills using four figure grid references.

 

 

Year 4

Year Four located different cities in Greece and compared them to cities in England. They compared features like climate, housing and the environment.

Year 5

Year Five discovered how rivers are formed and identified the features of different parts of a river from source to estuary. They explored how erosion can change the shape of the river and surrounding landscape.

Geography
The goal of teaching geography at Parkhill Junior School is to have all children understand the world around them. The children will be using rich geographical enquiry to discover the inter connectedness of the world around them. Acquisition of lifelong questioning skills will allow the children to experience the richness of the world around. Geography and the study of it will require field work which is integral to understanding how humans can change and utilise the environment around them.
