Geography is a foundation subject in the Primary National Curriculum. Geography is about understanding the world around us and using a variety of skills to investigate the interactions between the human and physical environments. It is an essential part of pupils’ learning at Alexander McLeod Primary School because it equips them with the knowledge and skills they need to understand the complex world around them. It prepares the children for the future as learners, workers and part of a community. There are meaningful and relevant links between geography and many other areas of the curriculum, which provides opportunities for children to connect different learning experiences and therefore make better sense of a wide range of concepts.
