Bolton School Junior Girls
Geography teaches an understanding of places and environments. Through their learning, our children discover their local area, the United Kingdom and the wider world. Taught as part of our Learning Challenge curriculum, topics include Volcanoes & Earthquakes, Rivers & Oceans, the Rainforest, Mexico and the Geography of the United Kingdom.
The girls learn how to draw and interpret maps and develop their skills of research, investigation, analysis and problem solving. We often use the online resource ‘Oddizzi’, which provides engaging and interactive information and activities. We organise visiting speakers, workshops and educational visits to reinforce and enhance the children’s learning.
We find out about different countries, overlapping into RE and History. My favourite part is finding out about the weather.Megan, Year 6
