How you can help your child with Geography learning at home

Geography is all around us, and even in the simplest of daily activities pupils can learn Geography and act as Geographers.  'Geography is the subject that knits together people and the planet and at a time when we see how intrinsic that link is, and why sustainability matters, it's never been clearer cut. Give your children a curiosity, a love of finding out how and why our planet is as it is, a love of their bit of the world they see every day when they step outside home.' (Greening, 2016, p.19)  Geography is the only subject that has multiple ways of empowering children to re-imagine the future of the world.

Ideas of how to help your child with learning Geography

  • Watch the news and discuss features.  Encourage your children to be critical thinkers by asking questions about what they have seen or heard.  How trustworthy are the sources and are there opposing views that have not been considered?
