The Geography curriculum at Hollywell Primary School has been developed to inspire pupils' curiosity about the world in which they live. Where possible, our curriculum encourages a hands on approach using a mixture of fieldwork, technology and research skills to enrich pupils' knowledge and understanding of their place in the world.
We study local areas/issues and extend these studies into the wider world. The children learn to use maps to locate cities, countries, mountain ranges, rivers, seas and oceans. They use atlases, photos and the internet to explore the environment and economics of those countries which they study. They use the skills that they have developed in other areas of the curriculum to record their findings.
