Through the study of geography, we aim to stimulate our children’s curiosity and fascination about the world around them; developing an interest in and a sense of wonder about people, places and environments and how they are interconnected. Geography also helps children understand change; exploring their own place in the world, their values and their responsibilities to other people, to the environment and to the sustainability of the planet.
Whilst at Perry Hall, pupils undertake a ‘world tour’ in geography, visiting every continent, gaining knowledge and developing transferable skills. Outdoor learning and fieldwork offers regular opportunities for children to connect with a place, community and environment.
Geographical enquiry is central to the curriculum and encourages questioning, investigating, collecting and analysing data and drawing conclusions whilst encouraging critical thinking about issues affecting the world and people’s lives, now and in the future.
