Geography

At Emsworth Primary School, our intent is for our keen young geographers to be fascinated and inspired to develop knowledge and understanding about their locality, the United Kingdom and globally significant locations around the world. They are actively engaged to learn map and fieldwork skills, including first-hand observations, enhancing their locational awareness and can use vocabulary relating to their human and physical geography.

The implementation of geographical enquiries teaches children to recognise, describe and explain features and connections in the places studied, comparing similarities and differences and evaluating what this means to them in their local community and helping them make sense of the world.

The impact of learning geography at Emsworth Primary School is that the curiosity and detailed knowledge, skills and understanding they gain will remain with them for life.

For suggestions on how to help children with geography at home, please speak to your child’s class teacher.
