Pupils will be taught:

  • Geographical skills
  • Knowledge and understanding of places
  • Physical geography
  • Human geography
  • Environmental geography

Throughout our teaching and learning of geography we:

  • enable children to gain knowledge and understanding of places in the world – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristic;
  • enable children to understand that key physical and human geographical features of the word are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time;
  • enable children to know and understand environmental problems at a local, regional and global level;
  • encourage in children a commitment to sustainable development and an appreciation of what ‘global citizenship’ means;
  • increase children’s knowledge of other cultures and, in so doing, teach a respect and understanding of what it means to be a positive citizen in a multi-cultural country;
  • allow children to learn graphic skills, including how to use, draw and interpret maps;
  • encourage development of a variety of other skills, including those of enquiry, interpretation of data, problem solving, aerial photography, ICT, investigation and how to present their conclusions in the most appropriate way. We will be introducing children in the upper school to Geographical Information Systems (GIS).
