At Nether Stowey, our aim for geography is for children to not only learn facts and information about the world around them, but to also learn the skills required to use and apply these skills in the real world. We want our pupils to be equipped with place and locational knowledge and to have an understanding of the human and physical geography of places around the world. It is important that children also experience geographical fieldwork to experience their learning first hand and to apply the skills they have learned. We develop this by ensuring that geography is woven into topics where appropriate so that pupils can put their learning in to context. For example, in KS2 a topic about the Romans would include an element of teaching about Italy and Europe. In KS1, a topic about the rainforest would include a comparison with local woodland.
