National Curriculum Geography helps children acquire skills, knowledge and understanding which will give them:
• a sense of wonder at the diversity of the natural and man-made world
• facts about people and places
• ideas about man and his environment and the inter-relationship between people and places
• geographical skills such as map reading
The use of practical experiences is stressed and children will be able to investigate the geography, geology and industry of the local environment. As far as possible children will learn through enquiry and the handling of geographical 'evidence' (photographs, products, maps).
