Subject intent Geography
At St Michael’s we want our children to love Geography.
We want them to be curious about the world around them, to develop their geographical skills as they progress through the school and to have hands on experiences to deepen their Geographical knowledge.
The geography curriculum has been carefully crafted so that our children develop their geographical knowledge and skills. Early in their learning journey, when the children first start to look at the world around them e.g. as they are running through a field or paddling in rivers they are busy asking questions developing their geographical knowledge and sparking their curiosity. As our children progress through our school, 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. We want them to have respect for the world around them so that in their daily lives they can make a conscious effort to protect it.
We achieve this by providing a rich, diverse curriculum, underpinned by our school’s core values of Respect, Honesty and Love, enabling every member of the school community to have a ‘Lifetime Love for Learning’.
