The children will be given opportunities to study their local and global environment using atlases, globes, photographs and maps. Where appropriate and possible, field trips are arranged for a more direct experience of the environment.
In teaching Geography we aim to:
stimulate children's interest in their surroundings and in the variety of human and physical conditions on the Earth's surface;
foster children's sense of wonder at the beauty of the world around them;
help children to develop an informed concern about the quality of the environment and the future of the human habitat; and
thereby enhance children's sense of responsibility for the care of the Earth and its people.
