Our approach to teaching Geography at Houghton Primary School
In order that our learners are enabled to develop the key characteristics of geographers we teach geography within a contextual approach which makes the best possible use of our wonderful location in a village on the Great River Ouse as a starting point to explore the world and provides opportunities for independence and problem solving as children search for answers to questions or challenges which get them to think geographically. Supported by the teaching of a full range of practical and study skills children are enabled to carry out investigations and research which will develop their geographical knowledge and understanding. Our approach seeks to inspire and motivate our children to want to find out more and to develop a thirst for geographical knowledge.
