Geography

 

In Geography we aim to provide opportunities to develop the children's sense of wonder at the beauty and scale of the world. We aim to develop children's knowledge and understanding of national, regional, religious and ethnic identities in the UK and the wider world. To enable children to understand the social and cultural influences on their lives, we aim to provide opportunities for children to discuss and reflect upon social, political, economic and environmental issues.

 

Their learning will include the use of geographical vocabulary, enquiry skills, fieldwork skills, mapping, questioning, use of photographs and the study of places in the UK and the wider world. To ensure the children have a wide range of experiences, trips and visitors are included as often as possible. Our large outdoor environment and local area around school is frequently used to embed and increase their subject knowledge.
