At Yohden Primary School, we aim to inspire children’s curiosity, interest to explore more about the world that we live in, and its people, which aims to ignite a love of learning. Children investigate a range of places – both in Britain and abroad – to help develop their knowledge and understanding of the Earth’s physical and human processes. We want to enable our learners to gain a greater understanding and knowledge of the world and their place in it. We are committed to providing children with opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about their local area so that they can develop of real sense of who they are, their heritage and what makes our local area unique and special.
Teaching should equip children to be able to develop their geographical skills and to improve their knowledge through studying places, people and natural and human environments. The children will take part in fieldwork opportunities throughout their learning at Yohden Primary School and they will explore the local area around them.
