Statement of Intent:Our Geography curriculum has been designed to enable the children to gain an understanding of both the Earth’s physical processes, including the formation of landscapes and environments, and the place of people within these. They will develop an understanding of local, national and global locations and have the opportunity to compare these. To develop their understanding and recognise their responsibility as citizens of the world, the children will also explore the impact of humanity on the environment.
The ‘Big Ideas’:The ‘Big Ideas’ in our Geography curriculum are location, interpretation and comparison. These form an integral part of the development of skills and the learning of key concepts in this area of the curriculum. The curriculum reflects our school vision ‘Love other people…as we love ourselves’ as the pupils are given the opportunity to learn about the lives of people from other cultures and to appreciate and celebrate the diversity of human experience on a global scale.
