Through geography, we aim to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, and to equip them with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. We teach pupils about the formation and use of landscapes and environments and to understand the interaction between physical and human processes.
The key areas of geography are:
- Locational Knowledge
- Place knowledge
- Human and physical geography
- Geographical skills and fieldwork.
These key areas are taught alongside science and history through our topic cycle.
Teaching is supported by fieldwork and offsite visits which provide real contexts for exploration of geographical processes and opportunities for children to develop a sense of place.
