Geography at Kingmoor Nursery and Infant School
Geography is the study of places and the relationship between people and their environments.
At Kingmoor Nursery and Infant School, Geography allows children to explore, appreciate and understand the world around them. Through enquiry based learning, children are inspired to become curious about the world and the people in it. By starting with their immediate environment, children are given first hand experiences to be able to question and investigate their own world before exploring their geographical skills through the wider world. Children will learn how their environment impacts their lives and the impact their lives have on the environment giving them the foundations to become responsible global citizens.
