As Geographers

Our children will:

  • Develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places;

  • Understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time

  • Collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork

  • Interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

  • Communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
