Geography Curriculum INFORMation
‘The study of Geography is about more than memorising places on a map. It’s about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exist across continents. And in the end, it’s about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together.’- Barack Obama
We aim to inspire a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with our children for the rest of their lives, both in their immediate surroundings and wider afield. Our purpose is to instil a desire to investigate a variety of human and physical characteristics of different places, both local and afar, through purposeful research and careful questioning. To be well-rounded citizens, we believe children need to understand the differences between places and their cultures and be able to recognise how these change over time. Children will acquire the disciplinary geographical skills to help them understand, present, analyse and communicate a range of information either collaboratively or as an individual. We want children to recognize their distinct rural location and the diversity of their country and the wider world.
