'The study of geography is about more than just memorising places on a map; it’s about understanding the complexity of our world.'

Barack Obama



We at Black Horse Hill Infant School firmly believe that children should be inspired to develop a curiosity about the world and its inhabitants.

As Geographers, our children will understand their place in the world through a widening geographical perspective, first looking at our locality and then progressively broadening that view to become one in a global context. Where possible, their learning will be enhanced through fieldwork and first-hand experience.  Moreover, crucial to developing a geographical awareness is being exposed to a range of sources including maps, atlases, globes and photographs. They will develop their use and understanding of geographical vocabulary so that they can confidently and articulately describe the world around them.

We believe that all children should have equality of opportunity and should be able to access the curriculum regardless of race, religion, gender or ability.
