At Leamington Community Primary School we aim to teach Geography in a fun, engaging and motivating way. We teach the children an understanding of places and environments. Through their work in geography, children learn about their local area and compare their life in this area with that in other regions in the United Kingdom and in the rest of the world. Children will learn how to draw and interpret maps and they will develop the skills of research, investigation, analysis and problem-solving. Through their growing knowledge and understanding of human geography, children will gain an appreciation of life in other cultures. Geography teaching also motivates children to find out about the physical world and enables them to recognise the importance of sustainable development for the future of mankind.

We have officially signed up to a new exciting geography based website called Oddizzi. Each child will be provided with a log in and will be able to access this exciting resource at home as well as in school. The children will find lots of opportunity to support their geography learning through fact files, videos and quizzes on this website.
