Geography encourages pupils to increase their knowledge and understanding of a range of people, places and cultures.
Pupils learn about their local area and compare it with that of other regions in the United Kingdom and Europe, North and South America. Pupils study the location and characterisitics of a range of the world’s most significant human and physical features. Pupils learn subject specific vocabulary relating to human and physical geography and use gepgraphical tools and skills including first-hand observation to enhance locational awareness and knowledge.
Within our geography teaching, links are made across many other subject areas, to continually motivate and engage children in their learning.
To help bring pupil’s understanding of geography to life, we have developed a close partnership with the Angelstarfish Education Centre in the Mandela Township in South Africa. Through this, children are able to understand, on a deeper level, the similarities and differences between life in England and life in a less developed area of South Africa.
We follow the National Curriculum 2014 programmes of study ensuring progression in knowledge, skills and understanding.
