At Village Primary School we encourage children to view the world as a bigger picture, ensuring they are curious and enthusiastic global citizens. We aim to provide children with hands-on experiences that allow them to explore whilst developing their knowledge and skill through active learning. We provide children the opportunities to extend their knowledge and understanding of physical and human geography through fieldwork and school trips. Meaningful links are made to Global Goals and the UNICEF Rights of the Child where relevant.
Visits to local heritage sites provides children with pride and excitement of their local area. Through the teaching of Philosophy for Children and Global Goals the children are able to support arguments and understand the need for change in the world, whilst gaining a further understanding of people and their culture. We intend to allow our children to dream of the world outside and to discover how to investigate human and physical features.
Here are some links that might support geography:
