Brierley Primary School  

Brierley Primary School > The Curriculum > Geography


Geography teaches an understanding of the world around us.  Here at Brierley we aim:


  • To stimulate children's interest in their surroundings and in the variety of human and physical conditions on the Earth's surface.
  • To foster children's sense of wonder at the beauty of the world around them.
  • To help children to develop an informed concern about the quality of the environment and the future of the human habitat.
  • To learn life skills through the use of maps, research, investigation, and problem solving.
  • To enhance children's sense of responsibility for the care of the Earth and its people.

At Key stage 1 pupils study the world around them paying particular attention to their home, school and Crewe itself.  In key stage 2 pupils focus more on wider issues such as life in contrasting environments, both in the UK and abroad; physical processes such as mountains and rivers; as well as local and global environmental issues. Fieldtrips are encouraged to support pupil’s understanding.
