At Shawclough we aim to inspire pupils to develop a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Knowledge about diverse places, people and environments is key to develop their curiosity and understanding.

In Key Stage One, children are taught about their local environment and compare and contrast a non European society with the country they live in .They will develop an awareness of landscapes around them from first hand observations.

As children progress through Key Stage Two, these skills are built upon and extended. Children will study human and physical landscapes, environmental  issues, landscape uses and advancing map skills.
