Our school, our world – primary geography through the school grounds
Pages 17

The school and its grounds provide a wealth of opportunities for learning in geography. This chapter outlines research and practice relating to the use of the school grounds in primary geography.

The chapter draws on the following ideas:

• Children value their schools and grounds as a place for learning, playing and ‘being’. • The school and its grounds are a key resource in primary geography and should be

used frequently in lessons. • Many concepts and skills can be developed in school grounds for all classes.
