Geography at Ashurst

At Ashurst Primary school, we believe that Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. 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.

Top tips for parents to encourage your young geographers 

Geography- The children loved acting as geographers when discussing whether to live in Northern Brazil or Southern Brazil. They worked collaboratively to discuss the different reasons why, supporting them making informed decisions.

Fieldwork- Year 2 loved walking to the local shops to undertake fieldwork based linked to their topic 'Where does our food come from?'. They were able to talk to the local butcher about the food and the journey it had been on before reaching his shop. The children were able to ask their own geographical questions to support their learning.
