Geography

Cuthberts (9 of 116)(3)

Our aims of teaching geography:

  • To increase pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the local environment, a contrasting locality and the world beyond by making comparisons and links.
  • To develop and use geographical enquiry skills through the use of ICT, field work, secondary sources and by using and making maps

 

Geography in the National Curriculum

Geography develops children’s knowledge of people, places and environments around the world. It makes a connection between natural and social sciences, encouraging the use of cross curricular skills and knowledge, requiring a range of investigating skills. Geography makes children aware of the issues facing our world and to think of global and not just local consequences. Geography help prepare children to be aware of their own responsibilities in looking after the world around them, being aware of the natural world that sustains us.
