Geography – curriculum information

“Our vision is to ensure that all children have a curiosity and fascination about our world and its people.

They will learn about diverse places, people, resources and both natural and human environments. Children will have a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes and understand how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.

We want to give children the chance to experience geography outside of the classroom by providing high quality field trips that give them the opportunities to apply geographical skills and field work and fall in love with the world around them!”

What do pupils think about the geography curriculum –

“I love learning about other countries around the world and how other people live their lives!”

“I enjoy using the atlases to locate other continents and learn more about the differences between our lifestyles and cultures”

“My favourite geography lesson is learning about the different capital cities”
