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

In December the children thoroughly enjoy making our very own gingerbread using Fairtrade products.  All donations are sent into Fairtrade.

Fairtrade Gingerbread

In December 2019 the children 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. Unfortunately, we were unable to do this event last Christmas due to Covid, however we hope to make a difference this December.

St. Chads enjoyed taking part in European day. Each class had their own country which they represented for the day. All children were asked to dress up in the colours of their country. Each class had a fabulous time learning about their European country and taking part in lots of activities. We were also lucky enough to have a European themed lunch cooked by our fabulous catering staff at St. Chads.
