Geography at St Richard's 

"A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity, knowledge and wisdom in the pupils."   - Terri Guillemets 

Geography in Early Years

In Early Years we believe that children should  develop their understanding of the physical world and local area through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places and the environment. Children learn about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things. They talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one another. In class they will make observations of human and physical features. They will talk about why some things occur, and talk about changes. They talk about places they have visited and their different experiences of these places.
