At King’s Furlong Infant School and Nursery our teaching of geography inspires a curiosity and fascination about the world promoting an understanding of places and environments. Our children learn about their local area and beyond; the school grounds and local area are used by all year groups for a range of practical activities and enquiry-led learning. As the children move through the school they explore the wider locality and   other localities overseas.


 Through carefully planned and sequenced teaching our children become motivated to find out about the diversity of places, people and environments. We seek to inspire our children to be curious about the world around them. Through our Geography teaching we aim to further develop the children’s natural curiosity about the amazing world we live in. We aim to develop a responsible and caring approach to our world and all living things.


Our curriculum is planned to ensure a geographical knowledge about places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with an understanding of the earth’s physical and human processes. Geographical knowledge and vocabulary is taught alongside the development of subject specific skills including; being able to collect, analyse and communicate data, being able to interpret a range of sources of geographical information and to communicate geographical information.


We want children to develop respect for people different to themselves and the environment. As pupils study geography, they encounter different societies and cultures, which helps them understand how nations rely on each other. It supports them to think about their own place in the world, their values and their rights and responsibilities towards people and the environment.
