The study of Geography provokes and answers questions about the natural and human world. Through different scales of enquiry it helps children to view people, places and environments from different perspectives. At Huyton with Roby we aim to develop knowledge of places and environments throughout the world, an understanding of maps and a range of investigative and problem solving skills, both inside and outside the classroom. As pupils study geography, they encounter different societies and cultures. This helps them realise how nations rely on each other. It can inspire them to think about their own place in the world, their values, and their rights and responsibilities to other people and the environment. Having a broader view of the world encourages us to challenge any existing stereotypes of colour, gender or religion and so develop a sense of tolerance and respect for other peoples and cultures.
These are the titles of the units we will study in Geography in Key Stage 1 & 2
