Geography

We intend for our Geography curriculum to stimulate children’s interest in, and to encourage an appreciation of the world around us. We want to promote a curiosity about the world and for our children to be confident to understand and ask questions about the world. We will develop children’s understanding, knowledge and skills relating to their own environment and people who live there. We promote a curriculum which allows pupils to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. This will assist them in becoming a citizen of the world.

 We aim develop children’s interest in their surroundings and the wider world, inspiring a sense of responsibility and care for the world in which they live, and we encourage the pupils to apply their knowledge through our oracy framework and debating opportunities. We will introduce children to the skill of geographical enquiry and develop the skills needed to undertake geographical investigation. We will do this through fieldwork, locational knowledge and knowledge of human and physical aspects of the world.
