Miss Gilham - Geography Lead
I am a keen Geographer and love to encourage everyone to notice and appreciate the world we have around us, even in the hustle and bustle of day to day life.
At Etchells, our aim is developing the Geographical skills and using them through the other subjects. This way the children gain a better understanding of the world, whilst using their ever growing knowledge of writing, researching, data collecting, observing, comparing, predicting and concluding (to name but a few!).
We are SO lucky to have the amazing school grounds here at Etchells and I am keen to develop the outside areas to nurture our children's love of the outdoors further still. If you have any suggestions, resources or would like to help in any way I would love to hear from you!
Geography is all around us,it has helped shape where we live and how we live, even what we eat!
Our future generations will be affected by EVERYTHING we do NOW so it is important to understand and value the world around us!
Please take a look at 'The Progression of Geographical Skills' to see how the skills are taught through the Key Stages.
