Geography

Our intention is to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. We will teach our children about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. Our curriculum covers the Programme of Study in the National Curriculum UK 2014. However, we also teach children a process of interpretation and localisation to ensure that students are engaged with innovative and ambitious learning that has relevance to their lives. Our children are therefore challenged to think about 'real world' issues. 

Children will be taught to use an enquiry approach which contains these four central aspects;

  • the creation of a 'need to know' through the use of an engaging stimulus; (real life context, expert visitors, topic enquiry, field trips)
  • the collection and use of data (observed, measured, represented)
  • processing and making sense of that data (interpretation, concluding)
  • and finally reflecting on learning in order to apply it to future enquiries. (questions from answers)
