At Sir Henry Fermor, we have developed a comprehensive curriculum so that our students gain a thorough understanding of the different geographical features around us (physical and human), places local to us and those further a field. We also ensure that all children develop the necessary fieldwork skills to enable them to navigate using a map. Geography is taught discretely from History throughout the year.
Each term children will study a different topic. Where possible we have picked topics that compliment others being taught that term.
Planning for EYFS is done based on the children’s interests and will evolve as the year goes on.
