Geography

Geography at Foxhills Junior School will aim to inspire a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with children long after they leave us.

Teaching and learning will focus on locational knowledge; human and physical geography and geographical skills and fieldwork.  Children will be equipped with knowledge about a variety of places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a good understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.

 They will be competent in the geographical skills needed to:  collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experience of fieldwork, that will deepen their understanding of geographical processes; interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS); communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing.
