Children have a natural interest in the world around them and this curiosity is used to develop their knowledge and understanding of not only their locality but of contrasting localities in the United Kingdom and the wider world.
In all Key Stages we value the importance of trips as an important element in stimulating work in geography and broadening their understanding of the world around them. As well as the study of places, children are taught the essential skills of using resources such as maps, atlases and photographs as a means of gathering information. They are encouraged to ask probing questions, make relevant observations and develop a good geographical vocabulary.
Links with current world events are made whenever possible and displays are used to encourage children’s interest.
