‘Geography underpins a lifelong “conversation” about the earth as the home of humankind.’
The study of geography involves pupils in exploring the relationship and interactions between people and the environments in which they live and upon which they depend. Many of the pupils who now attend our school will live to see the next century and inhabit a world of 11 billion people. The many opportunities and challenges that will arise during their lifetime will be very much about geography – personal, local, national and global. Our pupils will need to think like geographers.
Geography helps to prepare our children for life in the 21st century with all of its currently unknown possibilities.
At Walesby C of E Primary School, we are committed to helping children understand and investigate the complex and dynamic world around them. We encourage pupils to learn through big question led enquiries about topics, places and themes which focuses on real people, places and geographical issues.
Whilst learning subject information is important, we ensure that there is a balance between this and the development of important subject skills as children progress from EYFS – Y6.
