In Geography we follow the National Curriculum to gain an understanding of the local area, South East England and a variety of other regions throughout the world. Pupils learn about weather and climate, features of the landscape, maps and fieldwork. Pupils will also have to find out about the regions people inhabit and their life style and the associated environmental issues.
A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our teaching will 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, 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.
In Key Stage 3, the teaching of History and Geography is combined under the title ‘Topic’.
