Geography and History
Geography at Springfield Infant School
It is our intent that all children will understand what it is to be a ‘geographer’. For our children this will mean learning about places, the world and the people living in it. We will ensure children are given the opportunities and practical experiences to learn about people and places around the world. Geography will be taught with a keen focus on developing a secure knowledge of where they live; of their own local area and of the United Kingdom. Opportunities will be given to develop a range of geographical skills, including how to use maps, atlases and globes, alongside fieldwork and observational experiences. Through specific teaching of subject specific terminology we aim to provide the children with a core of key vocabulary to use. This will provide them with the skills and confidence to express themselves and to communicate their ideas clearly, using geographical terms.
