We aim to develop excitement and engagement with our world to ensure our children better understand its people, places and environments. We examine interactions between people, how and why places are changing, to better imagine, predict and work towards, likely and preferred futures. This links closely to our science curriculum and also the work in our Global Citizenship Projects.
Children should not only ask questions and research information but also debate ideas and form strong, well thought out opinions about the world they live in.
We use Collins Primary Geography to offer a high quality Geography curriculum. Our lessons provide a wide range of recurring themes that are covered through different topics each year. The themes of World Around Us, Investigation, Change, Movement and Issues become a focus for each year group. Within these units, children access common concepts of Planet Earth, Water, Weather, Settlements, Work & Travel and the Environment.
