Geography is planned at Grayshott in accordance with the requirements of the National Curriculum and linked to termly topics to ensure coverage and progression. We start from the children’s own experiences of their immediate environment to build up an understanding of the physical world and the human society in which they are growing up. First hand experiences in fieldwork and through projects are embedded in the curriculum to develop environmental and conservation awareness, including a Year 5 residential visit to Stubbington Study Centre.
British Values and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) education
Children’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) education is linked with Geography through opportunities to experience awe and wonder at the natural world: both at the physical and human features. Children will consider ethical and moral questions in their study of different places. Geography also promotes tolerance and cultural education through the study of real people in different societies.
