At Belmont, we want to develop open-minded and curious individuals by assessing both the world and the people in their local communities as well as the world as a whole. We teach children to be analytical by accessing geographical concepts through a variety of learning experiences. These include regular opportunities to investigate the locality of the school and to learn about and interpret information from a range of sources.
At Belmont, we strive to develop keen and competent geographers. We develop the child’s ability to observe and find patterns in observation, raise questions, experiment and investigate, reason systematically and logically, solve problems and communicate their ideas with one another. We equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, individuals, resources and environments. Above all, we endeavour to inspire our pupils to be fascinated about the world and its people and foster a curiosity that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
Details of the Geography curriculum including how it is taught and evaluated along with how we support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities can found in the documents below.
