Hamp Nursery and Infants School

Where every child matters


At Hamp Nursery and Infant School, we aim to provide diverse and fully inclusive differentiated learning experiences of Geography, where every child thrives.


The Primary National Curriculum (2013) states ‘Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural human environments, together with a deep understanding of the earths key physical and human processes.’


We are committed to providing children with opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about our local area of Bridgwater and Sedgemoor so they can develop a real sense of who they are, their heritage and what makes our local areas unique and special.


The aims of teaching geography in our school are:

  • To prioritise speaking and listening within the geography curriculum and to encourage communication through a variety of ways such as, STC, pictures, drawings, ICT and writing.
  • To inspire pupils about the world and its people, that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
  • To develop confidence with the use of geographical resources such as globes, maps, plans and photographs to discover features of places and environments.
  • To develop geographical skills through focused investigative fieldwork such as the ability to collect data.
  • To become aware of the processes and effects on environments such as extreme weather conditions.
  • To know about where they live in the area of Hamp, their home town Bridgwater and the local features including the river.
  • To begin to develop a sense of community and make comparisons between our local area and other communities and cultures.
