The geography intent has been designed 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. By the time children leave English Martyrs they will have a greater knowledge of diverse places, people, and resources as well as a deeper understanding of the earth’s key physical and human processes. Children will be provided the opportunity to use skills taught to investigate the geography of the local area as well as the wider world continually building on prior learning. To ensure all pupils are given an equal opportunity to be great geographers the curriculum is enriched with memorable and engaging activities, including experiences of fieldwork. Geography is taught thematically, linking with other curriculum areas, allowing children to further deepen their understanding of key geographical concepts.
As an investigative subject geography at English Martyrs’ will provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. This in turn will promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, allowing children to develop a greater understanding of their place in the world.
