Geography at Brixham C of E Primary
Being a small fishing town that is in close proximity to the beautiful coastlines of Torbay and Brixham Harbour, using our locality is central to our geography curriculum at Brixham.
From Reception, children discover features of their immediate environment. This is built upon in year one with identifying features of our town location and making simple maps of our local environment. Throughout KS1 and KS2, we use other local areas for field work – coastline, beaches and woodland are all used for experiential stimulus to develop geographical skills and understanding.
Children leave Brixham as confident geographers that have developed a sense of agency and responsibility, as well as pride in their local community with the necessary skills and knowledge of their local area and global issues to progress to their next phase of education.
