We develop children with the following essential characteristics to help them become geographers:
Teachers use questioning to provide opportunities for discussion, investigation and support the development of vocabulary. Key geographical knowledge and language is revisited throughout the key stages to ensure children develop a well-rounded understanding. Tasks are varied to support, scaffold and deepen learning. Fieldwork in both the school grounds and wider community allows children to have first-hand experiences and enhances the teaching and learning of geography.
Children will learn to be active participants as investigators in geographical enquiry not just passive recipients of knowledge.
