"The study of geography is about more than just memorising places on a map. It's about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. And in the end, it's about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together."
Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States
The study of geography at Lanercost C of E Primary School stimulates an interest in, and a sense of wonder about, places. Our local landscape within the Eden Valley fosters this awe and wonderment due to its beauty and dramatic appearance. The environment provides us with a wealth of experiential geographical learning and helps the children to make sense of our complex and dynamically changing world, building on their own experiences to investigate places at all scales, from the local to the global.
