To develop a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. To know key facts about the world and its variety of landscapes, environments, peoples and cultures and to recognise the importance of being responsible, informed and caring global citizens. The children will understand the importance of key global issues which affect the future of our world, e.g. climate change, plastic, destruction of coral reefs etc. and be able to express their views on these issues.
They will know how certain physical and human features have developed over time, including rivers, volcanoes and settlements. They will be able to name and locate countries and cities around the world on a globe, world map, atlas and using digital mapping, and suggest what life might be like there and how it is different to their own. They will be taught to value ways of life that differ to their own. Children will be able to use a simple map themselves to guide them to a destination.
We will ensure that the children are confident geographers and can use their geographical knowledge and understanding to relate to other areas of learning within and beyond school.
