VISION -Being a Geographer at Lyppard Grange Primary School

At Lyppard Grange Primary School, we believe that Geography gives pupils an understanding of the world around them, places near and far, its environments, and the processes that create and affect them. Children are geographers at Lyppard Grange; they are excited to find out more about our world in the classroom and experience practical fieldwork in our forest school as well as the local area. With climate change, human impact and the environment part of our curriculum, our children ask big questions about they world they live in. They study diverse places across the globe and compare these places with their own environment. Children will, in turn, develop a passion for the world and a sense of responsibility for sustaining and protecting it.

Children are inspired by exciting and relevant themes and can see a link with Geography in school and their own futures. At Lyppard Grange Primary School, teaching is creative and inspiring with golden threads running through themes that are aimed at capturing children’s enthusiasm and interest.  



At Lyppard Grange Primary School, we want our pupils to develop an interest in the world in which we live, the people around it and the different environments that are found in it. We want to foster their curiosity about the world around them that enables them to grow as geographers and as global citizens. We want them to gain local knowledge as well as wider place knowledge, making comparisons between them, and understand the processes, human and physical, that occur within those places. In addition, they will gain fieldwork skills that enable them to study those places, develop their understanding, and equip them for their future. As geographers at Lyppard Grange Primary School, we want our pupils to have an awareness of their responsibility in creating a sustainable future for our planet. 


By providing well thought out, inspiring and engaging lessons, it is the intent of Lyppard Grange Primary School to ensure that pupils meet the aims of the national curriculum for geography and the early years foundation stage framework.



With exciting grabs to introduce new themes such as messages about missing dinosaur eggs from Argentina, being sent on a quest around the world, to becoming ‘Climate Cops’, children are drawn into a location or topic in an engaging, challenging and thought-provoking way. Children study a range of places, habitats and environments around the globe, from Worcester in the UK to Sydney in Australia, and from our local Forest School habitat to the Amazon rainforest. The cross-curricular approach at Lyppard Grange enables geography topics to be linked with other subjects such as history, for example the link between the English Civil War and the River Severn. Children are inspired by current and relevant geographical topics such as daily and seasonal weather patterns, climate change, and deforestation. Within lessons, children will be taught key vocabulary, build on previous knowledge, and be given opportunities for both independent and group work. From our Early Years children to Year 6, geography skills are being taught including using and creating maps, comparing different regions in the world and how humans impact the environment.



From the geography teaching at Lyppard Grange Primary School, our children will gain an understanding of their local environment and the wider world, and the physical and human characteristics of those places. They will develop their knowledge of the location of places on a local, national, and global scale. In addition, they will develop a sense of responsibility for sustainability and conservation and how they can be a responsible global citizen. They will learn to express their ideas and questions on a variety of topics such as climate change and deforestation and explore the wonder of different biomes throughout the globe. Through undertaking fieldwork, pupils will gain a range of transferable skills including teamwork and problem solving. With engaging and creative teaching, our aim is for pupils for become curious, excited and passionate about the world around them, its environments and the processes that create and affect them.
