Geography

Geography develops pupils’ understanding of the world in which they live through the study of place, space and environment.

Whilst geography provides a basis for pupils to understand their role within the world, by exploring locality and how people fit into a global structure, Geography also encourages children to learn through experience, particularly through practical and fieldwork activities.

Through the teaching of geography, Witchampton CofE First School aims to:

·       increase pupils’ awareness, knowledge and understanding of other cultures;

·       foster pupil’s sense of wonder at the beauty of the world around them;

·       develop pupils’ graphic skills, including how to use, draw and interpret maps;

·       make pupils aware of environmental problems at a local, regional and global level;

·       encourage pupils to commit to sustainable development.

Develop a variety of skills, including those in relation to problem-solving, ICT and presenting conclusions in the most appropriate way.
