GEOGRAPHY AT ST RICHARD'S

 

OUR INTENT

 

Our geography curriculum is designed to give our children an understanding about the world around them, and to foster a desire to learn and a curiosity that will drive future learning.

We aim for year groups to study both human and physical geography topics each year. The exciting range of processes and events studied include Brazilian carnivals, Italy’s volcanoes, Glastonbury festival and the forests of India.

Our extensive outdoor space as well as our local area provide a fantastic platform to explore many natural processes and concepts, so Geography lessons often include visits outdoors to put learning in context. This enables our children to work on skills such as observation, mapping and fieldwork. Our children also have many opportunities to see Geography in action further afield; with recent trips including the London Aquarium, Southsea beach and the Natural History Museum.

We believe such a broad range of topics studied and places visited gives our children the knowledge and skills needed to become individuals with an awareness and understanding of the fascinating lands, features, phenomena, and people of our world.
