We aim for all children at St Joseph's to be the very best geographers. The children will learn about human and physical geography by exploring, appreciating and understanding the world in which we live and how it has evolved.
We intend to do this by:
Long, medium and short planning is progressive and cohesive across the year groups and provides opportunities to revisit. Teachers provide quality first teaching in line with the teaching standards.
The children will have the ability to make links between human and physical geography and how the two impact upon each other
The children will develop geographical knowledge, skills and vocabulary to help them explore, navigate, and understand the world around them
Children will understand the effects of climate change and be aware of these effects upon their surroundings, their own responsibilities, and how they can contribute towards improving the environment, however small that contribution may be
Children will acquire knowledge of a range of different cultures and traditions, and learn tolerance and understanding of other people and environments
Children will understand localities, and how and where people fit into their overall structure.
