At Christ Church Primary School geography lessons are designed to inspire curiosity and fascination about the world and its people and in so doing, support pupils to connect both emotionally and intellectually with geography. Recognition for our curriculum has been made by the Geographical Association and we have been awarded with the Bronze Geography Mark.
We aim to provide our children with the opportunities to become global citizens, deepening their interest and wonder in exploring their own place in the world. Geography lessons provide ample opportunity for pupils to learn more about people, places and the environment and how this impacts on their lives, their futures and their world. Through our curriculum our children develop a sense of their world at the local, national and global scales understanding the interconnections between how people and the environment interact. Fieldwork is an essential part of this. Pupils learn to think critically, think spatially, use maps, visual images and new technologies to analyse and present information.
Children will have an adept understanding of their responsibilities within their own society whist also having a coherent insight into sustainability of a dynamically changing world. A range of opportunities are provided to enable all pupils to communicate their knowledge and understanding of the subject. Links are made within and across lessons to support pupils in making connections.
