Welcome to the World Around Us and the People In It!
Geography in Room 2 with Mrs Flanagan
Geography is a vibrant and interactive subject that allows students to prepare for life and work as individuals and contributors to society, the economy and the environment. Geography plays a significant role in helping pupils understand major issues that directly affect their lives and possibly communities. This is an important time and opportunity in pupils’ lives to help them explore their sense of identity and belonging, as well as investigating the world around them and valuing its diversity.
In geography lessons, pupils will acquire a wide range of thinking skills and personal capabilities including: Managing Information, Decision-Making, Creativity, Working with Others and Self Management. These skills will be put to good use whilst studying a plethora of physical and human topics, as well as assisting students during fieldtrips.
