Geography

Geography Intent

At Barnfields Primary School, pupils are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it.  We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives; to promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. Surrounding the school we have a rich local geography (such as Cannock Chase) and this is used to give children a deep understanding of their own locality, its interconnection with other places and change over time.   Our children are enabled, through our geography curriculum, to understand and begin to address global environmental issues facing the world today.
