Inspired by the life of St. Joseph,
we live, loveĀ and learn together.

Geography

The Geography Curriculum Intention

Through the Geography Curriculum we inspire ‘curiosity and fascination’ with the world. 

 

Pupils should learn about:

 Diverse places, people, resources, natural and human environments, the earth’s key physical and human processes

 

  • At St Joseph’s we wanted to take advantage of our excellent location and therefore fieldwork is widely incorporated into our curriculum
  • Geography is taught through thematic topics but links will be made to geographical knowledge ongoing
  • As a small-school with a predominately white-British intake (78%), coastal community, we additionally wanted the children to enquire- is everywhere like this?
  • We make links to geography through our Smile Curriculum where ‘global learning’ is developed
  • We make good links with Computing by using digital mapping software ‘Digi-maps’
