Geography teaches an understanding of places and environments. At Halsnead, through theirwork in geography, our children learn about their local area and compare their life in this area with that in other regions in the United Kingdom and in the rest of the world.

At Halsnead, they learn how to draw and interpret maps and they develop the skills of research, investigation, analysis and problem-solving.

Through their growing knowledge and understanding of human geography, our children gain an appreciation of life in other cultures. We believe geography teaching also motivates children to find out about the physical world and enables them to recognise the importance of sustainable development for the future of mankind
