“Geography explains the past, illuminates the present and prepares us for the future. What could be more important than that?”
At St Martin of Porres the teaching of geography will inspire our children to develop a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Within our enquiry-led Geography curriculum, we seek to equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to think creatively and critically, to investigate and to ask questions to enable them to gain a greater understanding, knowledge and appreciation of the world and their place in it.
Our Geography curriculum will teach children to appreciate the God’s wonderful world, encouraging them to stop and take note. We want children to become active citizens, growing up with the knowledge that they are guardians of the world and, as individuals, they can make a positive impact to the world in which they live.
At each stage of their geography education, children will deepen their locational knowledge, place knowledge and understanding of human and physical geography. Geographical skills will be built upon at each stage, providing children with distinctive tools with which to successfully navigate and engage with their world at a local, national and international level.
