Geography Vision Statement

“The study of geography is about more than just memorizing places on a map. It’s about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. And in the end, it’s about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together.”  (Barack Obama)

Here at St John’s, we teach geography through our HUMANS curriculum approach with the aim of instilling a curiosity , happiness and sense of wonder about the world and its people. We believe it is imperative for pupils to consider the society in which they live and where they feel they belong from their immediate locale, to their country, their continent and their wider world. Each child must feel a global citizen and be encouraged to consider the moral importance of nurturing our world and its people and the impact that they can have for a sustainable future. A key focus for all pupils is to develop an understanding of physical and human geographical features and environments combined with the diverse and rich cultures they inspire. They are encouraged to make comparisons and recognise that these are unlimited and continually evolving.

As young adventurers, we provide pupils with a progressive tool-box of geographical skills that enables them to ponder, analyse, question and communicate a wide range of sources and information. These skills such as map reading and drawing are then applied through fieldwork experiences in our surrounding area and beyond through educational visits. Areas covered are designed to meet the aims and study requirements of the National Curriculum and are carefully planned to align with a cross-curricular approach.
