Geography Intent

Geography is about people, places and the world around us. It is also about developing life-long geographers who know that they, like Greta Thunberg,are never too small to make a difference. At Elmsleigh Infant and Nursery School, our vision, our intention is to approach Geography in exciting ways, exploring the world outside our front door to one end: to equip our children with the essential knowledge and skills that they need not only to be educated citizens but environmental stewards, who make a difference in their world.

At Elmsleigh Infant and Nursery School, we believe that Geography is an essential part of the curriculum, as it provides a means of exploring, appreciating and understanding the world in which we live and how it has evolved. We are committed to providing all children with learning opportunities that engage them in the area of  Geography, as we know that it contributes to the cultural, social, spiritual and moral life of children as they learn tolerance for and acquire knowledge of a range of different cultures and traditions.

I have learned you are never too small to make a difference.” Greta Thunberg
