Geography

Vision

 

At St Cecilia’s Catholic Junior School, we feel it is important to encourage a curiosity and respect for the world around us and a sense of pride in where we come from. Through our geography curriculum and valuable learning experiences, we prepare our pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to make sense of the world and face the challenges that will shape our societies and environments at local, national and global scales.

 

Throughout the school, children will learn about diverse cultures, people and places, allowing them to thrive socially, morally, culturally and spiritually. They will explore human and physical features, discuss how these differ across the world and consider the processes that form and change them.

 

At our school, we also aim to build upon pupils’ skills, conceptual understanding and use of geographical vocabulary. We believe that this underpins thinking ‘geographically’ about the changing world and will prepare our pupils to live sustainably.
