Geography

 

At Parc Eglos, children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. Our curriculum helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world, whilst enabling children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferrable to other curriculum areas. Geography is an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. Our intent, when teaching geography, is to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and people within it; to promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. We provide opportunities to investigate and enquire about our local area, this will support children to develop an understanding of who they are, their heritage and what makes our local area so unique and special.
