Netherton Infant School Maryport ..................................... SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY


Our Geography curriculum is centred around  our children’s knowledge and understanding of the wider world and community around them. Through developing a sense of place, geography inspires a curiosity and appreciation of the environment. Our children are equipped with knowledge of diverse places and people. Through exploration and collaborative learning, they develop skills for life in observing, communicating and comparing what they learn about the world around them. 

Within EYFS, children begin to develop their geographical knowledge by exploring features of our school and Nursery.  Children have rich opportunities to make use of school grounds to enhance and apply their skills as geographers. Throughout the year, children observe and discuss the weather and seasonal changes. Children also learn about the different jobs which people do in our community.

As children move into KS1, they build on these strong foundations, developing their locational awareness, geographical skills and knowledge of physical and human geography. As well as learning about local geography, children enjoy having the opportunity to learn about different places by video calling other schools and countries around the world.
