Why Study Geography?

Geography is a wide-ranging subject which has become increasingly relevant to modern day society. It is studied at King’s Hall from Year 1 through to Year 8. In Pre-Prep and the early years, it is taught by the class teachers to prepare them for Year 5 through to Year 8, where the subject is in the hands of experienced and specialist geographers.

By using a combination of structured learning and practical fieldwork, the pupils are encouraged to foster an understanding of the world, its people and their various differences and problems on local, national and global scales.

 

 

The Great Outdoors

We aim to encourage our children to develop an interest and a degree of curiosity about the world around them. They are introduced to the practical benefits of maps, atlases and digital resources. King's Hall is fortunate to be located in beautiful grounds and these are employed for a variety of studies outside of the classroom. We also benefit from our superb location in the South West of England, being relatively close to coastline, moorland and urban environments, and these provide the destination for numerous exciting and worthwhile field trips.

 

 

Out and About

We're incredibly lucky to be located close to areas of outstanding natural beauty. In Year 3, pupils get out and about by walking up Dunkery Beacon, which is the highest point on nearby Exmoor, and visit the local village of North Curry on the Somerset Levels. Year 4 pupils explore the Dorset coastline and visit a stunning example of a sheltered bay at Lulworth Cove. The Year 5 children get to see a working quarry and marvel at the enormous scale of Whatley Quarry, while in Year 6, pupils study a local river from its source high on the Quantock Hills, to its mouth in the Bristol Channel.
