At St George’s School we want the children to be able to understand people, places and environments locally and across the world.
We follow the National Curriculum for geogarphy which identifies and groups subject objectives for KS1 and KS2.
The National Curriculum states that its purpose is to ‘inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives’ and we strive to ensure that all children develop this core knowledge and understanding whilst at St George’s.
Geography is taught through a topic based approach and gives pupils a chance to explore a wide range of environments with field work visits where possible and artefacts and high quality sources for those further afield. This allows links and connections to be made to other areas of the curriculum as children develop their knowledge and understanding.
