Hampsthwaite Primary School - Geography Vision
In Geography, our aim is to respond to and develop children's curiosity in both their immediate surroundings and in places and environments in the wider world.
Our purpose is to instil an interest, fascination and desire to investigate a variety of human and physical characteristics of different places, both local and afar, through purposeful research and careful questioning.
To be well rounded citizens, we believe children need to understand the differences between places and their cultures and be able to recognise how these change over time.
We provide children with many opportunities to use a range of geographical skills to help them understand, present, analyse and communicate a range of information either collaboratively or as an individual. These skills are put into practice both inside and outside the classroom through local fieldwork and trips.
