In Geography are intent is to develop the children’s interest in a variety of physical and human environments in the wider world by expanding horizons out of the local community. The implication of this will mean the children have a number of opportunities to use a range of investigative and problem-solving skills inside the classroom which are rooted in each topic area the study. The impact of these skills will mean our children have: a better understanding of the world they live in; understand the impact the decisions they make have on their world and are fully equipped to travel and investigate the places they visit.
