Geography at Holmwood School and Nursery


Our intent is that our teaching of Geography will help pupils gain knowledge of human and physical features as well as place and location.

Reading for pleasure - when linked to subjects like Geography - can introduce a whole new world! There's so many exciting stories which cover the themes of geography such as weather and seasons to different settings of countries and continents. Children can immerse themselves easily into a good book whilst reinforcing their learning of these themes.

We aim for children to confidently know that a geographer is a type of scientist who studies the earth, land and people. Geography lessons focus on developing observational skills, geographical skills and fieldwork through the themes as children work as geographers.

Whilst children work as geographers they will develop their knowledge of using and making maps as well as using aerial photographs. They will also learn to use their observational skills and use positional and directional language.
