HUNTERS BAR INFANT SCHOOL
We believe that Geography is a tool of learning and communication. Geography is essentially about the study of places, the human and physical processes which shape them, and the people who live in them. Skills developed through Geography help pupils make sense of their surroundings and the wider world. We aim to stimulate the children’s interest in and curiosity about their surroundings and foster a sense of wonder about the world. We help them to develop a sense of responsibility for the environments and people of the world we live in and to understand the inter-dependence of people, resources and landscapes. The school works hard to present children with positive images of people throughout the world.
The children will be taught Geography within a creative curriculum. The geography curriculum is supported by specific skills progression to develop and improve skills throughout EYFS and KS1 During geography lessons the children will have opportunities to apply geographical enquiry and skills within a real context. The children have numerous opportunities to visit not only the school locality but some localities further afield too. We also have a wonderful link with a school in Ethiopia, Africa called Elshadai Elementary School and we take part in various projects with them throughout the school year.
