The study of geography at Holy Trinity Primary School is an integral part of our lives and cultures, helping pupils to develop awareness of the local environment and the world around them.
The geography curriculum at Holy Trinity Primary School has been created to allow pupils to develop an understanding of the world in which they live. Through exploring the immediate world around them during EYFS and KS1, our pupils begin to learn and understand the human and physical features of Halifax and what their local area is really like. We are privileged to have in our school grounds Trinity Woods, an area which allows all pupils to have access to a range of outdoor experiences including our local biome and the changes of the seasons.
During KS2 our pupils further develop their understanding and knowledge of the world by studying various locations further afield. Pupils use their knowledge and understanding of the local area to compare and form comparisons with these locations aa well as identifying how the UK is connected to different countries by trade, tourism and migration. The use of maps, fieldwork and a range of secondary sources provides opportunities to record and evaluate their findings.
