At Beaufort School, children develop an understanding that Geography is about the world around us. Geography at Beaufort helps to develop children’s deeper understanding of the world around us as well as their general knowledge. Children are encouraged to research facts and information which interest them and are given opportunities to follow their own lines of enquiry, reporting back to others. ICT is used as an integral part of this process and children are taught to use a variety of resources, including the internet, photographs, maps and first hand experiences, including visits, fieldwork and surveys.
Children are provided with a wide range of experiences which help them to develop an understanding of the importance of caring for the environment, making links to sustainability and sustainable living. They can speak knowledgeably about local and global issues which may affect their future, including global warming, and can suggest how they might make a difference.
