At Devonshire Infant Academy we aim for our children to develop an understanding of place. This begins with an understanding of their place in their family and their local area and community, and builds toward knowledge of the United Kingdom and the wider world.
We want them to develop a sense of curiosity about people and places and the interaction between them. To become citizens of their own localities, and growing to understand what it means to be citizens of the UK and the world beyond.
We want the children to develop:
- Locational knowledge
- Place knowledge
- Human and physical geography
- Geographical skills and fieldwork
- Use of basic geographical vocabulary
