We believe a high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
The Geography curriculum is taught in a way that provides them with factual knowledge of Geographical locations, processes and skills.
The knowledge will include contextual understanding of their local environment and the wider world in terms of both human and physical influences. Through understanding the processes that have formed the different human and physical things they learn about; the children can have a deeper understanding of the cause of global and local variation and change over time.
To help them obtain this knowledge they will use and develop the Geographical skills of:
- Analysing data through fieldwork and research.
- Interpreting information from a range of sources including maps, aerial photographs, globes, diagrams and Geographical information systems.
- Communicating Geographical information in a variety of ways including maps, data and writing at length.
