At St. Martha’s it is our intent for the Geography curriculum to inspire pupils with a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. In order to make our Geography curriculum relevant and interesting, we have specifically tailored the countries we study to reflect the cultural backgrounds of our pupils. Teaching will equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. Our curriculum will enable 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.
As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments and how these are interconnected and change over time.
We want our children to gain confidence and practical experiences of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills in a variety of ways, settings and contexts.
