At Franche Primary we embed the key skills and knowledge of Geography within purposeful and engaging cross-curricular topics to inspire children’s natural curiosity about the world and its people. Through the study of both human and physical Geography, children will be encouraged to understand and respect the differences between a wide range of people and environments.
Fieldwork skills will be taught in school and off-site which will include the gathering of data, use of digital technology and communicating geographical information in a variety of ways. In addition to this, to ensure depth of knowledge and understanding, our weekly ‘Where in the World sessions’ explore local and global issues whilst developing map skills to become competently map-literate. These relevant learning opportunities and experiences will ensure that children develop an understanding of where they are within the world.
