Geography

At the Pilgrim School we enable children to engage in geography through enquiry and practical opportunities with the expectations for each year group underpinned by teaching the National Curriculum.  We make use of our Review, Teach, Practise and Apply process which enables us to establish next steps for each child ensuring they are able to make progress. We encourage children to ask as well as answer geographical questions and to develop a love for the subject and an understanding of their part in the world. 

Geography contributes to the cultural, social, spiritual and moral life of children as they acquire knowledge of a range of different cultures and traditions, and learn tolerance and understanding of other people and environments. 

The location of our school makes learning geography particularly interesting.  We are positioned near to the River Medway which leads into the Thames Estuary.  We can see (and hear!) traffic on the M2 bridge which runs very close to our school, with traffic heading towards London or to the coast.  Great starting points for many of our geography topics!
