At Portsdown Primary School we believe Geography should inspire in pupils with curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils with skills to investigate places discovering their similarities and differences. Our Geography lessons teach knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. Geography must also provide a deep understanding of the
Earth’s key physical and human processes. As children progress through our school, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
