We are Geographers

At Brackenbury Primary School, we aim for our children to have a curiosity and fascination of the world that will stay with them throughout their lives. We believe geography will foster our learners to have a global understanding of our world through the people and cultures that inhabit it. 

Through their work in geography, children at Brackenbury will learn about their local area; developing a sense of belonging within our local community. Pupils explore and compare their life in Portslade with that in other regions in the United Kingdom and the rest of the world. This enables them to build wider cultural and social awareness of both environments and the communities around them, becoming open-minded global citizens. 

The curriculum is designed to develop knowledge and skills that are progressive, as well as transferable, throughout their time at school and also to their further education and beyond. We offer them the opportunity to use a variety of data, such as maps and statistics and we enable them to use IT where this serves to enhance their learning. Children take part in role-play, discussions and a wide variety of problem-solving activities. Wherever possible, we involve the children in ‘real-life’ geographical activities including local orienteering and debates involving our school’s use of energy and resources.
