Through geography children learn about a variety of places and the communities that live within them. They learn about the processes and consequences of change in different environments and begin to understand what ‘global citizenship’ means.
At Etz Chaim we plan opportunities to enable children to acquire the geographical skills and knowledge needed to understand places and themes, for example through map work at different scales, and by conducting practical activities such as hand on experience visiting the local area. It equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world will help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
