At Byron Primary School we offer children a high quality geography curriculum, giving them a sense of place - both where they live and in the wider world. They learn about what our local area has to offer and compare and contrast that to places in the rest of the UK, Europe and beyond. We aim to inspire curiosity and fascination about the world and its people by encouraging children to ask questions and challenge their thinking.
Wherever possible, our geography curriculum is enhanced by trips and visitors, as these bring the curriculum alive to our children. Fieldwork is a vital part of our geography curriculum as it gives the children first hand experiences where they can apply the skills learnt.
Work is differentiated to include all pupils and our trips and visitors enable every child to experience fieldwork first hand.
By deepening our children's knowledge of geography, we will help them to understand how the world has grown and changed over time, the diversity of people's lives and the possibility for us to live sustainably for the future.
