Geography

Our aim is to provoke and answer questions about geography in relation to both the natural and manmade world by developing and using geographical enquiry skills. Geography develops knowledge of places and environments, an understanding of maps and promotes a range of investigative and problem-solving skills both inside and outside the classroom. It is a focus for understanding and resolving issues about the environment and sustainable development.

As children study geography, they encounter different societies and cultures. This helps them realise how nations rely on each other and can inspire them to think about their own place in the world, their values and their rights and responsibilities to other people and the environment.

In Key Stage 1 children develop knowledge, skills and understanding relating to their environment and the people who live there, along with a developing awareness of the wider world.

In Key Stage 2, children progress to study in depth people, places and themes from local to national in the United Kingdom and overseas. They investigate how people and places are linked and how they relate to the wider world.
