Briar Hill Infant School
Mrs Dearing and Mrs McAlpine are our Geography Leaders
Through our topic based Geography our children develop their knowledge of people and places and begin to understand how physical, social and economic factors alter the landscape. In Reception this is achieved via our active curriculum which encourages children to immerse themselves in learning about the world around them.
Through practical experiences such as walks around the local area children gain an appreciation of local landmarks and buildings. In Year 1 we look at compass directions and maps and walk around the local area. We also examine different habitats around the world. In Year 2 we study the local area particular the buildings in Warwick and we also look at the geography of World War I in conjunction with our History topic. Our final topic is Pirates which allows the children to develope a deeper undertanding of maps in an exciting way.
