Geography gives children the opportunity to understand how the world has changed and developed and how it continues to do so.
We equip children with geographical skills to develop their knowledge through studying places, people and natural and human environments. This seeks to deepen the understanding of the Earth’s human and physical forms and processes. We also intend children to develop geographical skills: collecting and analysing data; using maps, globes, aerial photographs and digital mapping to name and identify countries, continents and oceans; and communicating information in a variety of ways.
The curriculum is designed to develop knowledge and skills that are progressive, as well as transferable allowing the children to build upon their growing knowledge of the world to help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes. Through our teaching, we intend to provoke thought, questions and to encourage children to discover answers to their own questions through exploration and research to enable them to gain a greater understanding and knowledge of the world and their place in it.
Promoting Personal, Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development and Fundamental British Values
Geography focusses on people and their relationships and have a strong impact on our children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural education.
In every lesson, children are expected either to consider the needs and experiences of others, or their own personal responses to events, problems and changes in the world.
