‘Havelock pupils gave many examples of how they learn about their rights during topic work and assemblies. Curriculum plans also make explicit reference to articles.’

At Havelock Primary School, we provide a high quality geography education that inspires pupils to become curious and fascinated about the world and its people. We teach locational and place knowledge, as well as, human and physical geography.
Geographical skills and fieldwork are woven through all topics. Not only do children look at their own local area, but they also get the opportunity to explore national and global regions. Pupils will be able to communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps and cross curricular writing. As pupils develop their understanding, they will be able to see the links between physical and human processes that will hopefully inspire them to become future geographers.
Children will learn about:
- Continents, oceans/seas and various countries.
- Compare regions through studying the human and physical geography.
- Gain knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments.
- Develop an understating of the Earth’s key physical and human processes and how it can change over time (e.g. climate zones and biomes).
- Use fieldwork and geographical skills to support their learning.
