Geography

Geography teaching at Eastwood School is about developing an understanding of the world, reflecting and celebrating the vast cultural experiences and identities of our children.  Through Geography teaching, we help our children to gain a greater understanding of the ways of life and cultures of people in other places. This will help to enable children to take responsibility for their role in society and in communities to develop a caring attitude towards others, animals and plants in our environment.

Geography is concerned with the study of places, the human and physical processes which shape them and the people who live in them. Children study their local area of Rotherham and contrasting places in the United Kingdom and other parts of the world. The study of the local area forms an important part of the geography taught at our school and activities are planned to build upon the children’s knowledge and understanding of the local area.
