Through Geography at the Ridge we aim to help our children develop a love of the subject as well as key skills they will need to be successful geographers. We teach them the skills they need to carry out fieldwork as well as teaching them the features of maps and how to read them. We help and encourage them to be curious about the world around them and ask questions which they can then investigate themselves. Alongside these skills, we teach them about human and physical Geography of the world and how one aspect can affect another. Whenever possible we try to take the children on trips to enhance their understanding of topics we are studying.
Some of the topics we study include; Our local area, Rivers, South America and Volcanoes.
