Our Learning / Geography

Geography at St. Margaret Clitherow

At St. Margaret Clitherow School We aim for all pupils to develop a curiosity through the study of people and places and the interactions between them, preparing them for life in a diverse community and encouraging respect for the environment.

How is our curriculum delivered?

We teach a geography curriculum that is ambitious and designed for all pupils. It is coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively providing the necessary knowledge and skills for the pupils’ future to empower them to take their role as informed and active citizens in the 21st century. Its emphasis is not just on geographical knowledge but also skills and concepts. It has the same challenging academic ambitions for all pupils. Pupils work from a shared starting point to answer the same key questions.

EYFS cover Geography through their varied curriculum and topics. Following the interests of the child and continual assessment, we adjust our provision accordingly to ensure that they meet their end of year outcomes.

As well as their geography during learning time. We have a school eco – committee with a representative from each class. The eco –committee meet to discuss ways we can improve the school such as introducing plastic recycling in school.

We also have themed days such as celebrating many of the amazing initiatives around the world such as Fairtrade Fortnight and EarthDay.
