Geography Leader - Mrs Edwards
Geography is the exploration and understanding of the World in which we live. It is a way of looking at the World that focuses our learning on what the environment and places are like, the human and physical processes that shape them, the people who live in them and why these places are important to us.
Geography at Cradley CE Primary
Throughout our Geography Curriculum at Cradley, all pupils will:
- develop their knowledge and understanding of places in local, regional, national, international and global contexts.
- develop key skills in the use of resources (maps, atlases, compasses) and be able to apply these skills, in practical contexts, with confidence and understanding.
- develop knowledge and understanding of the physical elements of geography, including weather and climate, water forms (oceans, rivers, lakes), landforms (valleys, mountains, plains, hills), animal and plant life.
- develop their knowledge and understanding of human geography by looking at populations, settlements (Romans, Vikings) and communications (transport).
- understand the World and the part that natural resources play (rocks, soil, minerals, plants, animals, weather) and the possibilities of protecting and managing environments.
- develop an awareness of the environment and the environmental issues within it (through Forest Schools and the Eco council).
- develop an understanding of the intrinsic value of the world, it’s environments and resources.
- develop a sense of wonder at the world around them through exploration and through the values taught at Cradley.
- enjoy studying the world around them and to be given opportunities to stimulate their enquiring minds.
