Geography at St. Christopher's 

Image result for geography

At St. Christopher's, Geography is all about enquiry, knowledge and geographical skills.  It is taught through a topic-based curriculum in which we start with a 'big question' at the beginning of the topic which we aim to answer by the end using our many skills such as research, fieldwork and map work! 

 

 

The National Curriculum for Geography aims to ensure that all pupils:

- Develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes.

-Understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time.

-Are competent in the geographical skills needed to: collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
