The Royal Geographical Society simply states that Geography is "about the world in which we live". To the young and inquisitive mind, the world in which we live is an exciting and fascinating place. Geography at Welbourne develops our pupils' curiosity and understanding of the world, enabling them to become more informed and responsible citizens.
More specifically, the study of Geography is concerned with the study of places, the human and physical processes that shape them and the people who live in them. It also helps give children a sense of belonging both to their immediate environment and to the wider world. Special emphasis is placed on observing, comparing, describing, recording and questioning various aspects of different areas ranging from Werrington to other localities of Britain, Europe and distant countries.
Geography in Reception is taught within the Early Years curriculum. Years 1-6 follow the National Curriculum in Geography for KS1 and KS2 (please click here to view the National Geography Curriculum). The National Curriculum focuses on four key areas: locational knowledge, place knowledge, human and physical geography, and geographical skills and fieldwork.
