At Lady Bankes Junior School, we believe that Geography helps children to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the World.
Children progress to develop a greater understanding of their local area, United Kingdom, Europe and of the World, as well as their place in it. We include all learners by encouraging and valuing their background when exploring different places, and use a variety of ICT tools, maps and fieldwork to enable all children to access the subject.
The Geography curriculum enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas, and are used to promote their cultural development.
In Lady Bankes we encourage discussion of current affairs affecting the physical World around us and seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the World and its people, which will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
