Our aim in Geography is to stimulate children’s interest and curiosity in the immediate and wider world and to develop their awareness of their part in it. Pupils investigate their own locality and surrounding areas and also develop an awareness of the wider world, learning about different environments, places and the people that live there. Children are encouraged to develop their enquiry skills through questioning and fieldwork within the school grounds. Children have the opportunity to use a range of resources which enrich the Geography curriculum; these include photographs, maps, books, computers and Learn Pads. We also welcome visits from the Freshwater Theatre Company focussing on developing geographical knowledge through drama e.g. Continents in Year 2.
