Geography aims to promote an understanding of the natural environment and man's response to it. The geography curriculum is based on skills for life such as map skills, understanding graphs and reaching your own decisions when faced with conflicting views. It also responds to events, both natural and human, in the world around us.
Children naturally question everything so the curriculum is built around key questions where they work together with us to formulate their own answers. We can respond to topical issues and the pupils' interests.
Skills and knowledge are wide ranging and cross curricular links are made with Maths, Science, English, History, RS, ICT, Citizenship and Technology. Our aim is to produce Global Citizens.
A variety of teaching methods are used and pupils are encouraged to research topics using different media including books, new items, current affairs and video. Pupils can present their work in a variety of formats according to their interests and ability such as mind maps, extended writing tasks, annotated posters, presentations and movie clips. Fieldwork is an integral part of the geography curriculum and out of class activities and fieldwork opportunities occur across all the year groups.
We hope that by studying geography students will be able to make more sense of their own surroundings and of the wider world and be able to take their place in it.
