Geography is a valued part of the curriculum at Homefields Primary School. It enables the children to explore, appreciate and understand the world in which they live and how it has evolved. Geography encourages children to learn through experience, particularly through fieldwork of both our local area and further afield and through practical activities. It can inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
Our pupils learn about how landscapes are formed, discover how people and economies have an impact on the environment and eco-systems, and compare our own locality to a variety of towns and countries around the world. They learn how to draw and interpret maps and develop the skills of research, investigation, analysis and problem-solving. Through their growing knowledge and understanding of human geography, children gain an appreciation of life in other cultures.
