At Grindleton Primary School, it is our intent that the geography curriculum will inspire our pupils with a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
The teaching of this subject will equip our pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. This together with a greater understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes will encourage the children to show respect for their local, national and international environment.
We want our children to gain confidence and enjoy practical experiences through local fieldwork studies. Our fieldwork includes studies of the school itself and the surrounding area.
The children are also challenged to think about 'real world ' issues such as climate change. Time is given to address things that are happening in the wider world as seen on the News such as earthquakes, hurricanes, typhoons and volcanoes.
