St Ann's Geography Curriculum

Geography Curriculum Aims

To develop children’s knowledge, experiences and understanding of geography, inspiring and igniting their curiosity about the wider world and their understanding of communities.

We aim to develop children’s:

  • Contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places including their ability to define physical and human characteristics
  • understanding of the physical, social and economic forces which shape those places and the people who live there.
  • Field work and mapping skills of location, symbols, scale, perspective and map use.

For us, geography begins in the local environment and then extends out into the wider world.  The studies include cities, rivers and counties of the UK and then stretches into continents, oceans, rivers and mountain ranges in Europe and other parts of the world.  Projects include volcanoes, the water cycle, coasts and comparing and contrasting world environments. 

We hope that through their studies the children will become more aware of the cultural and environmental diversity of the world and the future problems we may face.
