Geography

Intent

(Why we teach Geography)

At St James Primary School, children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. The geography curriculum at St James enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can and are used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

 

Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. We aim to inspire a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives; to promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.

 

The curriculum is designed to develop knowledge and skills that are progressive, as well as transferable, throughout their time at St James and also to their further education and beyond.
