Geography at Fulfen

In Geography pupils develop their knowledge of people and
places.


We explore the physical, social and economic forces which
shape the world and the lifestyles of different people and 
cultures. This starts with our local area; pupils will be given
opportunities to learn more about the features/issues facing
Burntwood and Staffordshire. An essential part of this
understanding is ensuring that pupils have chance for fieldwork

studies in and around Burntwood. 

Such studies and understanding will also be extended and
compared with the wider world. Children will learn to use maps
to locate both physical (e.g. mountain ranges, rivers) and human
(e.g. cities, country borders) features. They will use atlases, photos and different online resources to explore the environment and economies of those countries which they study. 

Geography is also a fantastic lens through which to develop 
other skills vital across the curriculum. Pupils will be able to
record and communicate their findings by utilising skills that they
have developed in numeracy, ICT and particularly writing.
