At The Beeches Primary School, it is our intention that Geography will inspire pupils with a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them throughout their lives. We recognise that many of our children join us from other countries and bring with them their own rich knowledge that we can use as a learning tool for others. We also know that, sometimes, limited life opportunities can restrict our children experiences, which we aim to widen through our topics and experiences. The use of trips and experiences is an integral part of the learning journey through our Cornerstones Curriculum.
We aim to offer opportunities for children to explore the world in order to develop an understanding of the human and physical world in which they live in and their place within it. We aim to promote the children’s interest and understanding about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
It is our intention that Geography will promote children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development helping them to have a greater understanding of their place in the world, and their rights and responsibilities to other people and the environment. This is further developed specifically through our Forest School Provision.
our intention that the Geography curriculum will be both stimulating and motivating in order to capture our children’s curiosity and fuel their motivation to learn. The children should be provided with exciting learning opportunities so as they enjoy acquiring and developing their skills and knowledge and perceive the world as an interesting place. With a solid foundation upon which they can continue to build their knowledge, we hope that the children will continue to have a curiosity of the world throughout their life.
