We aim to broaden children’s knowledge of the world, giving them aspirations beyond the local area.
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.
Children 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 peoples’ 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.
