Big Picture - Talk like a Geographer
We learn about our physical world, the people in it and our connection to it by exploring and making sense of where we are in our community and wider world. To understand the changes in our environment and how we impact the environment by the choices we make. We have a role to play to protect where we live.
At St. Stephen’s Infant School we encourage children to discover and learn about the world around them. Geography provides children with a developing understanding of our world. Children are better prepared to understand topics impacting our planet such as climate change and global warming, plus celebrating global diversity. From studying the local area of Kingswood, to learning about the wider Bristol community and places around our World, we encourage children to be curious and engage in research using a variety of different resources, comparing the lives of people who live there, as well as examining different natural habitats.
Children will develop their observational skills, ask questions through curiosity about the world and others around them. We aim for children to be aware of environmental issues and sustainability to prepare them for the future.
