Geography

Herne CE Infant and Nursery School

Geography

 

At Herne CE Infants we aim to deliver a high quality Geography curriculum that inspires children’s curiosity and fascination about the world in which they live. We believe that Geography is crucial in developing children’s understanding of not only their local environment and community but also the wider world, comparing and contrasting to develop an awareness and respect for different cultures and the physical world around them. We aim to equip our children with skills in recognising, describing, explaining, comparing and evaluating human and physical geographical elements, encouraging them to accurately use the appropriate technical vocabulary. Geography is taught through carefully selected topics that are designed to develop our children’s interests in an engaging and motivating approach with cross-curricular opportunities. We follow an enquiry based approach to Geography, encouraging children to ask questions and discover the world around them though first hand experiences, providing opportunities to explore our local environment as much as possible. We follow a planned progression of skills and knowledge, which relate to the objectives set out in the Key Stage 1 National Curriculum and EYFS Development Matters (Understanding the World), to ensure that children are embedding and building upon their learning as they move through each year group.
