Geography develops children’s knowledge and understanding of people and places. At Carrington Infant School we learn about the wider world as well as local areas. There are many cross-curricular links with subjects such as Mathematics and computing. In the EYFS Stage, children learn about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects and materials. They are able to discuss their own immediate environment and understand how environments may vary from one to another. During Key Stage 1, children develop their knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality. They explore physical and human differences in the world around them. Children learn about the skills needed to ask geographical questions about a locality in the UK compared to a locality in a less economically developed country.
