St Matthew's C.E Primary School

Geography

Geography is all about the world around us. At St Matthew’s, our learning in Geography develops a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We teach pupils about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. Learning builds a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes too. Geography is one of the subjects delivered within our ‘Cornerstones’ curriculum. Teachers aim to enrich children’s knowledge and understanding of geographical processes as well as build on prior attained skills and knowledge. Our children will learn about local environments and where possible, give a practical approach to learning.  Learners will also build upon their knowledge of places around the world. They will develop their geographical skills by interpreting a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes and aerial photographs.
