Mr Nuttall & Mrs Howarth
At GEMS, we want our children to be confident Geographers. As well as developing their confidence and general knowledge, we encourage the learning of geographical skills so that they aspire to be conservationists, town planners, weather forecasters, cartographers and a range of other professions. Our aim is to provide a purposeful platform to enable our children to explore, appreciate and understand the world in which we live and how it has evolved over the years. Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. We aim to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives. We aim to promote the children’s’ interest in, and understanding of, diverse places, people and resources. We aim to show that an understanding of our natural and human environments together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes are the main facets of a successful geography curriculum. box.
Our Geography curriculum is well thought out in order for children to develop their practical and geographical skills. We provide opportunities for children to explore the outdoor learning environments, both within the school grounds and local community.
We measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods:
1. Locational & Place Knowledge
2. Human & Physical Geography
3. Geographical Skills & Fieldwork
