At Poringland Primary School, we aim for our Geography lessons to be enjoyable, active and to inspire children’s curiosity to learn and discover more about the world around them. We encourage our children to ask questions and to observe, investigate and carry out research about places and environments within their local area, other regions in the United Kingdom and within in the wider world. We endeavour for our children to be excited to learn about human and physical geography, gaining an appreciation and respect of life for other cultures and the importance of a sustainable development for the future of mankind.
As the children move through the key stages, they will build upon their geographical skills, place and locational knowledge and develop their understanding of the vocabulary used. Children are provided with opportunities to use skills taught both inside and outside the classroom through local field work, trips and visitors to the school. We use the natural environment within our school grounds as much as possible to support the teaching and learning of Geography.
“Geography is a living, breathing subject, constantly adapting it to change. It is dynamic and relevant. For me Geography is a great adventure with a purpose. Geography is the subject that holds the key to the future”
Sir Michael Palin
