At Anthony Bek Primary School, we fervently believe that children need to be fully immersed in a subject in order for long term learning to take place. With this in mind, Geography is taught with cross curricular links as a core aspect. This in turn drives curiosity and enables children to start questioning about physical environments/weather phenomena and human processes and how these areas impact upon each other.
In our Geography lessons, we strive to provide our children with the opportunities to become global citizens, deepening their interest and wonder in exploring the world and their own place in it. Through our curriculum, our children will develop a sense of their world at the local, national and global scales, understanding the interconnections between how people and the environment interact. Fieldwork is an essential part of this. Pupils learn to use maps and visual images to analyse and present information. They are also taught to think critically and will develop an adept understanding of their responsibilities within their own society, whilst also having an insight into the sustainability of a dynamically changing world.
