GEOGRAPHY

 

The peculiar value of geography lies in its fitness to nourish the mind with ideas and furnish the imagination with pictures - Charlotte Mason

 At Wolston St Margaret’s we aim to provide a Geography Curriculum that inspires the children to show curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We want to equip our children with the knowledge and skills to investigate diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key human and physical processes. As the children progress through the school, their knowledge about the world will help them to expand their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. The children will be taught how to apply their skills they learn in Geography to support their investigations and work in other areas of the curriculum.

For further information about our Geography Curriculum, please see the documents and information below:

GEOGRAPHY LEARNING LEAFLETS

Learning Leaflets include key vocabulary with definitions, dates and timelines, maps, significant individuals and other contextual knowledge along with key skills the children will need to demonstrate. We expect the majority of children to know the information on the learning leaflet by the end of the unit of work and be able to recall key detail.

The facts on the Learning Leaflet are the crystallised, necessary information about a topic but they don't represent the topic in its entirety and many children will have a far deeper understanding and be able to discuss and elaborate much further.
