At Bedonwell, we believe the teaching of Geography develops children’s ability to ask and answer questions about the world in which they live.
Geography helps children to make sense of the world in which they live by learning about the human, physical and environmental aspects. Children in Nursery and Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and are taught about Geography through the ‘Understanding the World’ aspect within the 'People and Communities' area. This involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment. We follow the National Curriculum for pupils in key stages 1 and 2.
We aim to:
- provide children with an understanding of the human, physical and environmental aspects of Georgraphy
- develop Geographic skills such as using maps, enquiry and exploration
- inspire children to find out more about the world they live in, and
- develop their sense of curiosity and identity
