Visiting our local field studies centre, just a mile walk from our school.

We want Cumnor pupils to be able to connect in the wider world, to have a deep sense of their own place and to know their responsibilities as a  global citizen. We want to foster curiosity in physical and human features in a wide range of locations and societies.

Learning about rainforest vegetation.

In Geography lessons, pupils learn to investigate their local area and wider world. They  investigate a variety of people, places and environments at different scales in the United Kingdom and abroad, and start to make links between different places in the world. They carry out geographical enquiry inside and outside the classroom. They ask geographical questions about people, places and environments, and use geographical skills and resources such as maps and photographs, atlases, aerial photographs and ICT.

We are so fortunate to have a school site in such beautiful surroundings and make full use of it whether exploring human or physical features. To enrich the curriculum we try to make full use of our local outdoor education centre and also have Forest Schools sessions running regularly throughout the year for all ages.  Y6 have a week long residential visit to an Outdoor Education Centre each year to further develop their fieldwork, knowledge and understanding. It is always thoroughly enjoyed.
