Geography at Homerswood

 

At Homerswood Primary and Nursery School, we believe the Geography curriculum should inspire curiosity, fascination and encourage individual thinking skills. By providing a vibrant and ambitious curriculum our pupils will gain a broad and balanced view of the world and its people. Our Geography curriculum enables pupils to develop their knowledge about diverse places, people, resources, and natural and human processes. Pupils will also develop an understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and the formation and use of landscapes and environments.
