Our Geography curriculum aims to develop the geographical skills of our pupils which allows for a broader, deeper understanding of the four areas of geography identified in the curriculum. Through their work children will develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places and understanding of the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, along with how they bring about variation and change over time. We intend to develop children’s curiosity and a fascination of the world and its people and recognize the importance of sustainability, becoming responsible citizens; responding to Pope Francis’ invitation in Laudato Si to live simply and protect the world which God has entrusted to us. Through their growing knowledge and understanding of human geography children gain an appreciation of life in other cultures. Our lessons are intended to improve children’s geographical vocabulary, map skills and geographical facts and provide opportunities for consolidation, challenge and variety to ensure interest and progress in the subject.
