Geography



Vision for Geography 
Through Geography we believe we can inspire curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We believe it is important to nurture inquisitive thinking and questioning skills to help children interpret what they see. We hope to instil a love for enquiry and investigation in our children. Hopefully we can motivate our pupils to take an active part in contributing to and protecting this world as they grow up. We see that using compasses, atlases globes and aerial photographs as integral to great Geography learning journeys.
