We aim to enable children to gain a better understanding of the wider world in which they live, to be aware of the physical environments and the need to safeguard the world in which we live for a better future.

Pupils are presented with a range of different experiences of their local and global surroundings, to help them understand some of the important characteristics of the Earth’s major physical systems – its landforms, weather and climate, and sustaining the world for the future. They will also compare and contrast different world cultures and develop respect and understanding of the way of life of other people.
