At Burnham on Crouch Primary School we strongly believe that children should feel connected to the world that they live in. We aim to inspire our children with a sense of curiosity and fascination for the world and its people. We are driven by the need to prepare children for life in a diverse and multicultural world as well as developing a love of lifelong learning. The teaching of geography aims to broaden children’s geographical view of the world whilst equipping them with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. It gives them the chance to learn a range of skills which they can use throughout their life. The geography topics have been carefully chosen to reflect the demands of the National Curriculum. Through each two week block and key stage children build upon their prior knowledge, develop their curiosity and embed essential knowledge into their long-term memory.
