At St Richard’s, we strive to inspire our children to have an innate curiosity and fascination about the world that they live in and the diversity the surrounds them. Our goal is for all children to develop a love of geography.
Our exciting geography curriculum is designed to have concepts weaved throughout every year group in order to encourage purposeful repetition to ensure the progressive development of geographical concepts, knowledge and skills. This progression builds on previous understanding so that our children are striving to become geographers who are aware of their impact in the world and the responsibilities we all have. We know that developing geographical skills is essential as our children live in a modern world that is wide open for them to explore. With opportunities to travel and work in different cities and countries across the world, we equip pupils with the geographical skills needed to efficiently use maps, charts and analyse geographical data.
Through well planned lessons, children at St Richard’s will be equipped with forward thinking geographical knowledge about their locality, diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments.
Our aim is to create a learning environment where children have a thirst for investigation and new learning. Our curriculum allows for regular fieldwork which enables pupils to develop subject knowledge and also gain a range of skills outside of the classroom. This is underpinned by geographical vocabulary enabling children to effectively communicate this knowledge.
It is our intent that throughout their time within the St Richard’s family that our children will become exceptional geographers.
