At St Teath C.P. School, Geography is a vital part of our curriculum because we want to inspire a curiosity in our pupils about the world so they want to experience it themselves and broaden their horizons and learn about their locality and other localities. Our curriculum will not only give them understanding about the world that they live in, but hopefully provide the stimulus to make them want to experience culture. Children knowing the physical and human characteristics of localities will help ensure the future generations look after our planet and embrace all it offers for experiences, employment and leisure.
In Michael Palin’s words :
"You can travel the seas, poles and deserts and see nothing. To really understand the world, you need to get under the skin of the people and places. In other words, learn about geography. I can’t imagine a subject more relevant in schools. We’d all be lost without it."
This year the school has adopted the 'Opening Worlds' Humanities Curriculum to deliver the Geography Curriculum in KS2. KS1 geography progression is designed to link in to the Opening Worlds Curriculum themes and skills.
