You can travel the seas, poles and deserts and see nothing. To really understand the world, you need to get under the skin of the people and places. In other words, learn about geography. I can’t imagine a subject more relevant in schools. We’d all be lost without it.’

During our last Geography monitoring carried out by Mrs Wilson and Mrs Salisbury (Geography coordinators) along with  Miss Coates (Deputy Head of School) the children demonstrated their learning in Geography by talking through their class floor books, their own Gepgraphy topic books as well as  sharing their views on the subject. You can also use #Oakygeography on Twitter to see what children have been learning in school.

We have learnt about Italy, The capital of Italy is Rome and you know that it's a capitial when you look in an atlas because it has a  red square next to it'. Layla, Year 3      

'We love our assemblies where we use maps to locate stories of the world' Year 6 pupil

We linked our geography with our history, so when we learnt about Scandinavia, we linked back to the Saxons and Vikings, We explored the places which ended with 'ham' which would mean a village and 'ford' which would mean water'. Beth, Year 4

  An example of human geography is when we learnt about Christopher Columbus in assembly, as he changed a place, lfor example, how the land was used. Our assemblies really help us to support our learning in geography'. Erin, Year 5

Geography is all about our world. It's about knowing where places are and where people choose to live, So learning stuff about populations and maps'. Max, Year 6
