Geography

 

Geography Intent

The learning of Geography at St Joseph’s allows children to develop a wider understanding of the world around them; on a local, national and international scale. We aim to develop children’s skills in mapping, geographical enquiry and essential knowledge to form a deep and meaningful connection with their environment. In the early years and KS1 children map their immediate surroundings and also gain an understanding of place on a larger scale, the United Kingdom and Continents of the World. Children learn about weather, continents and begin to find similarities and differences with a contrasting country in the world.

As they move into KS2 children build on these skills and further develop and sense of place. Children learn to talk about where they live and talk about changes in their surroundings. We ask questions and investigate natural disasters and other physical processes as well as observing our environment through fieldwork and educational visits.  Geography at St Joseph’s is designed to inspire children’s curiosity about the world and begin to understand the processes within it.

 

Throughout our Geography Curriculum we will promote our school and Christian values:

 

Belonging – We will make children aware of their local context by comparing and contrasting with other locations around the world.

Caring – Ensure children develop a sense of caring for the physical environment and people around the world

Enjoying – Ensure children enjoy their local environment and develop a sense of care and duty to protect it

Respect – Develop children’s curiosity and respect for the world around them and the creatures within it

Teamwork – have the opportunity to take part in practical fieldwork that involves working as part of a team.
