As part of the Geography curriculum, children will learn about   diverse places, people, resources and environments which leads to a deeper understanding of the Earth's physical and human features and the formation of landscapes and environments over time. 

To enable our children to become global citizens, we help them to develop an informed concern about the environment and the future of the human habitat. We aim to give children an understanding of the sense of responsibility for the care of the Earth and its people. 

In order for this to happen we aim to develop children's:

  • Geographical enquiry skills
  • Geographical skills and fieldwork skills
  • Location and place knowledge
  • Understanding of human and physical features
  • Understanding of sustainability

Teaching the Geography curriculum in this way enables us to:

  • Provide children with a deep understanding of our planet's key physical and human processes
  • Provide opportunities for children to undertake geographical enquiry by investigating and expressing their own views about people, places and environments
  • Develop the skills of interpreting a range of sources and geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes and aerial photographs
  • Help children understand how the human and physical features of a place can change over time and to teach children to collect and analyse evidence and draw conclusions
  • Progressively develop children's geographical skills and knowledge 
  • Foster enjoyment, satisfaction and curiosity for finding out about places, patterns and processes

Ensuring that prior knowledge   and meaningful connections are made is at the heart of this. It starts in Reception with children learning about the school grounds and locations beyond the school gate. In Key Stage One, children explore the local community and develop an understanding of the physical and human features of hot and cold countries around the world. This knowledge is then built upon in Key Stage Two.

We believe that if children become knowledgeable and skilful geographers  they will be able to articulate their knowledge and understanding with confidence. The work produced by our children and the discussions they have should demonstrate that they are equipped with the knowledge and skills to access the next stage of their Geography education.
