At St. Chads, we provide a high-quality geography education that inspires and engages pupils which leads them to be curious about the world and it’s people. Geography is a life skill and with excellent provision from our teachers, we hope that the skills taught in our lessons, will remain with our children for the rest of their lives. Teaching at St. Chad’s provides pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As our pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world will help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
Our Geography Coordinator in school is Miss Whatmough.
St. Chads is starting it’s journey in becoming a Fairtrade school. This means we are joining a worldwide organisation where young people, like us, learn that we have the power to make a difference in the world. This will give us, as a school, the opportunity to learn about global issues such as where food comes from and how we are connected to people around the world. Through the year there will be opportunities to help support Fairtrade in our school. Help us become a Fairtrade school and make a difference!

Our Fairtrade Journey

Year 3 have been learning all about Fairtrade as part of their Chocolate topic. The class were lucky enough to take part in a Chocolate workshop. The Ministry of Chocolate came to our school and delivered the chocolate journey. It was lots of fun! Co-op in Thornton supported us by donating £200 to help pay for our workshop. Co-op supports Fairtrade ensuring that everyone involved in supplying the products are treated fairly. We were also very lucky to receive a donation of chocolate and ingredients from Co-op so that Year 3 could all design and create their own chocolate creations.

Bake a difference with Gingerbread

Through December we will be making our very own gingerbread using Fairtrade products. These will be available to buy every Thursday in the school hall. All donations will be sent into Fairtrade.

Fairtrade Gingerbread

The children have had lots of fun baking gingerbread using Fairtrade products. Together we have raised £150 which has been donated to Fairtrade to help make a difference.  Thank you to all the children and their families for all your support.

On Wednesday 12th February, St. Chads will be taking part in a European day. Each class will have their own country which they will represent for the day. All children will be asked to dress up in the colours of their country. Each class will take part in activities based on their country for the day. There will also be a special lunch taking place for the whole school to take part in.
