The aim of geography at Holmewood is to stimulate children’s interest in their surroundings and in the variety of physical and human conditions on the Earth’s surface. As a result of their work it is hoped that children will develop an informed concern about the quality of the environment and the future of mankind on the planet.

The Children will develop their knowledge, skills and understanding relating to people, places and environments at different scales, locally, in the United Kingdom and worldwide. Case studies are used from both developed and developing countries to provide variety and balance, and to foster an appreciation of how people adapt to their environment, and the fact that some people have greater wealth and technical resources than others.
