Our Geography teaching is based on the National Curriculum and aims to inspire a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We aim to equip pupils with a knowledge and skills to enable them to gain a deeper geographical understanding of the world and the key physical and human processes within it.
Our children are taught to use a progressive range of map skills and become familiar with using atlases, globes, aerial photographs and digital maps. In addition they learn about the capital cities, countries and continents of the world and by studying topics such as rainforests, climate and natural resources, we aim to help them understand the important role they can play in caring for the planet.
Many of our topics are taught by making cross curricular links with other subjects: compass directions and map coordinates taught in Maths; water cycle taught with science and conservation and environmental focussed texts taught in English.
