Bromstone Primary School


At Bromstone Primary School, physical, human and environmental geography are taught through topic areas. The children are encouraged to immerse themselves in a variety of learning opportunities to secure their knowledge of places, processes and geographical skills. School visits and focused activities ensure that the children understand through experience and outdoor learning. At Bromstone, it is our intention that Geography is taught through a cross-discipline Big Question approach. This enables teachers to give a meaningful context for the learning. However, teachers make it explicit to children that they are learning geography skills and that they are being ‘Geographers’. Geography is important in our school as it provides a means of exploring, appreciating and understanding the world in which we live and how it has evolved.  We explore the relationship between Earth and its people.  It stimulates curiosity, imagination and questioning. Wherever possible, we aim to build upon the child’s  own experiences by developing geographical skills, understanding and knowledge through studying places and themes. Geography students leave us with an enjoyment of geography as a subject and we hope that some go onto become geographers themselves.
