Geography is concerned with the study of places, the human and physical processes that shape them and the people who live in them. At Walsden St Peter’s we aim to inspire pupils to develop a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Knowledge about diverse places, people and environments is key to develop their curiosity and understanding.
In the Early Years and Key Stage One, children learn about their immediate environment and how to read and draw simple maps using invented and conventional symbols. They are taught about their local environment and they compare and contrast a non European society with the country they live in .They will develop an awareness of landscapes around them from first hand observations.
As children progress through Key Stage Two, these skills are built upon and extended. Children will study human and physical landscapes, environmental issues, landscape uses and advancing map skills.
