At Brook Field Primary School, we believe Geography is a valued part of the curriculum, providing a purposeful means for exploring, appreciating and understanding the world in which we live and how it has evolved. We believe Geography should foster a child’s curiosity and fascination of the world around them. Through using a thematic cross-curricular, multi-sensory and skills based approach, we ensure that Geography is highly engaging for all children and covers the topics and range of scales outlined in the National Curriculum.
Geography explores the relationship between the Earth and its people through the study of place, space and environment. The exciting subject is concerned with children learning about their own locality, whilst becoming aware of and developing knowledge and understanding of the world beyond their own environment. It encourages children to learn through experiences, particularly through practical and fieldwork activities. It develops their locational knowledge, place knowledge, aspects of human and physical geography, as well as reinforcing geographical skills through fieldwork.
