We encourage children to become independent learners and working towards independently using their geographical knowledge, research and map skills.
We have access to a wide range of resources including a range of atlases and digital technologies to support their learning.
Children will have opportunity to study a locality in Britain, Europe as well as North and South America. These studies will allow children to locate and name continents, countries and their capital cities. They will learn about weather conditions, food and architecture in these countries whilst making links and comparisons between these places.
As they progress through the school, children will consider why economies around the world differ and the impact of this on people’s lives. In addition, they will consider the extreme environments around the world and discuss what we can do to help.
We aim to increase children’s knowledge of other cultures and teach them to respect and gain an understanding of what it means to be a positive citizen in a multi-cultural country.
