“The intent of our Geography curriculum is to deliver high-quality lessons that inspire all pupils to have an understanding of the world both near and afar. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to have first-hand experiences and be curious about the world, which supports their learning and interest. We want to provide opportunities to build on their prior learning and develop as Global Citizens. This will help to embed our values such as respect and responsibility.”
At St Michael’s, our Geography education aims to inspire pupils to be curious and fascinated about the world and the people who live in it.
Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes.
Children will learn through real-life experiences, exciting theme days and engage with the local community and the surrounding area to develop their geographical knowledge.
