Geography at Hillsborough

In geography we aim to:

-Deliver a curriculum which seeks to make pupils inquisitive, provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Furthermore, it aims to develop children's belief in their own ability to investigate geography and partake in a range of real-life experiences.

-Develop a curiosity for the subject, as well as growing their cultural capital. Children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world that they belong to, as well as their place in it both locally, nationally and globally which reflects the diverse range of cultures within the school.

- Value the importance of geography in the curriculum to support how children can become more confident in elements of geography and that these skills and knowledge are transferable to all the child's learning and build year-on-year.


We try to include a variety of field work and visits to enhance the geography curriculum although unfortunately we are currently (hopefully temporarily) restricted in where we can go due to the coronavirus situation. However, we are using our local area much more frequently.
