Geography

Geography

Geography is an integral part of our curriculum at St. Wilfrid’s. Our aim is to “inspire a natural curiosity and interest about the world and the people who live in it…..” ( 2014 GOV.UK ) .

Through Geography, children learn and encounter different societies and they are encouraged to think about their own place in the world. They enjoy learning about communities and relationships between people and landscapes.

We are following the new 2014 curriculum and its programmes of study. We aim to develop geographical skills and knowledge in 4 main areas: Place, location, physical and human and field work.

Most Geography is taught through a creative curriculum and links with different topics. As children progress through the Academy they develop a range of geographical skills.

There is a new emphasis on learning though first-hand experience and using the outdoors as a stimuli for teaching field work.
