Our Intent for Geography

The geography curriculum is concerned with the study of people and places, including human and physical processes which shape the world in which we all live together. At Woolston CE Primary School the intent of our geography curriculum is to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our curriculum is carefully structured so it builds on prior learning, with younger children learning about the local community and the UK, and older children learning about the wider world. We offer first hand experiences to engage and motivate children, including inviting visitors to school and visits to local places which further enhance our community links. We believe geography helps children to be aware of the diversity of wider society nationally and globally, and provides our children with an appreciation and understanding of cultures beyond our local community. We hope that through their learning in geography and their understanding of the wider world, that children will become courageous advocates of issues locally, nationally and globally.
