Our Curriculum – Geography
“Massive Minds, Huge Hearts, Guided by God”
Children will gain an understanding of the physical world and human society in which they are growing up. The study of geography will help the children to develop knowledge and understanding of local, regional and world environments and give the children the opportunity to develop the practical skills of map reading and fieldwork.
Both Geography and History naturally complement one another. We plan for these areas to support one another and blend together, helping us to deliver a more creative and enriching curriculum.
Where possible we try to create links between History and Geography. Where this is not possible, subjects are taught separately. We try to incorporate school visits, these give the children first hand experiences making the subjects relevant and memorable. We hope that by involving the children in studies in their own environment we can encourage greater awareness, knowledge and concern for their heritage and the environment around them.
