Understanding the World
In Reception, Geography is taught through our area of learning called ‘Understanding the World’. Over the year, the children have been learning about a range of places including Antarctica, and discussing what they might see if they went there. During our ‘Woodland Explorer’ sessions, children have enjoyed going into the forest school area and have engaged in a range of activities such as drawing maps. They have discussed man-made and natural features of the forest school area, and talked about materials that they could see. Back in the classroom, they have also been using globes, atlases and non-fiction books to learn more about the world around them.
