Geography

Intent Statement

We aim to give our children a high-quality geography education to generate awe and wonder about the world and its people. They will enjoy learning about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of
the interaction between physical and human processes and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.

It is our intention to:

–  develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places including their defining physical and human characteristics
–  understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world
–  collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes
–  interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
–  communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
