At Bonnygate Primary School, we use Oddizzi, an e-resource, designed to allow pupils to develop their knowledge of the world, and their place in it, and encourage them to undertake new experiences throughout their life. The children are able to develop their knowledge and understanding of physical and human features of geography through investigation of a range of places in Britain and overseas. As well as learning about the wider world, children are given ample opportunities to investigate and make enquires about their local area, so that children develop an understanding of what makes our local area special. We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives; to promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. The curriculum is designed develop knowledge and skills that are progressive, as well as transferable, throughout their time at Bonnygate Primary School and also to their further education and beyond.
