Geography teaching and learning at Fairfields encompasses skills that we hope will increase our pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Our aim through our teaching is to enable our pupils to want to look after the environment they live in and its resources by developing respect and understanding for the world we live in. We also hope that the children of Fairfields will begin to develop respect and interest in all people throughout the world regardless of culture, race or religion. We aim to develop every child’s sense of wonder about the world and create a sense of responsibility. This can only be done when the teaching of geography skills cover aspects of life that are relevant and meaningful to the children that we teach.
