Geography at Connaught Junior School is a key focus of many of our creative curriculum topics. It promotes conversation about the world we live in and allows the children to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to understand and be able to care for our planet. In current times it is vital that children learn to develop their understanding and respect towards other people and cultures. At Connaught Junior School, we believe that providing children with an understanding of geographical skills will allow them to develop their passion for the world in which they live. In order to implement this and ensure that our children improve every day, we will ensure that children have hands on experience with a number of geographical resources and incorporate map reading skills as well as referring to current environmental impacts of human activity on the world.
