In geography, we appreciate that our children are citizens of the world. We explore and gain a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. We inspire pupils with a curiosity and fascination about the world and emphasise the similarities we have with other peoples and nations. Our teaching equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources, as well as natural and human environments.
As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. We also want 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. We want children to enjoy and love learning about geography by gaining this knowledge and skills, not just through experiences in the classroom, but also with the use of fieldwork and educational visits.
