At Booth Wood, we aim to develop children’s sense of place. We teach geography to enable children to gain knowledge and understanding of places in the world (including both political and physical geography); and to increase their knowledge of other cultures. In so doing, they learn respect and understanding of what it means to be a positive citizen in a multi-cultural country. We also teach geography so that children learn graphic skills, including how to use, draw and interpret maps and to enable children to know and understand environmental problems at a local, regional, national and global scale. As our school
has its own Eco-Team, we encourage children’s commitment to sustainable development and an appreciation of what ‘global citizenship’ means. We also support the develop of a variety of other skills, including those of enquiry, problem solving, computing, investigation and how to present conclusions in the most appropriate way.
