'The study of geography is about more than just 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.'
During geography lessons in our school you will see:
children who are able to communicate ideas and ask questions using appropriate geographical language. Children will be taught to communicate their ideas through accurate map work and the use of diagrams and text. Our children are encouraged to engage in geographical debate.
children working collaboratively on geographical projects (e.g. fieldwork).
children who present the results of their geographical investigations in creative and engaging ways
children who recognise that geography is about people and their impact on places.This will include work around ecological awareness.
children who display empathy for the peoples they encounter during their geographical studies. Our children will be encouraged to engage with 'the big geographical issues' of out time.
children who have a sound knowledge of issues which effect people around the world. Teachers will use geography sessions to 'bring the world into the classroom' and allow children to engage with new cultures.
children who show pride in their work (e.g. accurate use of maps / diagrams / non-fiction features when writing texts).
