At Beacon Primary School, we believe that Geography is an important part of children’s wider education and their knowledge of the world around them. All children are provided with opportunities to develop a good understanding of their local area and the environment in which we live in, recognising the importance of the facilities we have around us. Through topics the children learn about our locality and discover what makes our area different to areas both in other UK destinations and around the world.
We provide an engaging and informative Geography curriculum that gives children a rich and varied knowledge of the world. All of our children will learn about a range of locations and habitats both close to home and outside of the UK. Children will use case studies based around their topics to gain key geographic skills such as map reading skills and directional knowledge. Children will also be aware of both human and physical characteristics a range of locations and are encouraged to build their curiosity of both their local area and worldwide locations.
In Early Years, the children learn Geography through the subject Understanding the World. The children access Geography through their play and through adult led activities for a range of topics across the year, as well as in weekly circle time discussions.
