At Inglehurst Infant School, we aim to inspire our children to be curious about their local area and the wider world around them. As geographers our children are encouraged to be inquisitive and ask questions to further their geographical understanding. We aim to build on the children’s personal geography by developing geographical skills, understanding and knowledge through studying places and themes.
The curriculum ensures that teaching 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. Geographical knowledge and skills are progressive and are sequenced to ensure that knowledge and skills are revisited and built on.
At Inglehurst Infants, we have a wonderfully diverse community and we use this to learn about different places around the world. We share information about global events and explore different cultures world-wide. Many of our children do not experience the world outside of their immediate locality. As a staff, we aim to share our own experiences and provide as much knowledge of the outside world as possible. We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives, equipping them well for further education and beyond.
