At St. Peter’s Primary School we seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives!
As a school, we aim to
- equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments.
- develop a deep understanding of the earths key physical and human processes
- deepen children’s understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes and the formation and use of landscapes and environments
- provide practical experiences through a variety of off site visits and fully utilising the local area to achieve desired outcomes.
Geography is taught through a wide variety of topics. Key knowledge and skills of each topic has been identified and consideration has been given to ensure that there is progression across the topics throughout each year group across the school. At the beginning of each topic children are able to convey what they know already as well as what they would like to find out. This informs the teaching and ensures that lessons are relevant and take account of children’s different starting points. There are strong cross curricular links with English, Maths and Computing which are planned for and used effectively. There are extensive opportunities for learning outside the classroom which are embedded in practice.
