Rothley Church of England Primary (Academy)

"Working together to achieve value and recognise the strengths of all"

Geography  

The school follows the National Curriculum as defined by the Department for Education in geography.

Geography develops knowledge of places and environments throughout the world, an understanding of maps, and a range of investigative and problem solving skills.

At Rothley geography is taught through a topic based approach. Fieldwork and practical research underpin skills development in geography. Teachers make good use of the extensive grounds and the local environment for practical and map work.  Understanding where they live helps pupils reflect on the similarities and differences of places both at home and world wide.

As a church school we use our Christian Ethos when studying other cultures.  This helps children to empathise and understand the sometimes vast injustices caused by the geographical differences of our planet.
