Geography promotes a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people and it is our aim at St John the Baptist to provide an engaging curriculum that enables our learners to develop a deep geographical knowledge alongside a strong sense of their role as a global citizen.
The curriculum at St Johns aims to equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, natural and human environments, combined with developing a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. Pupils will develop a contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places, including their physical and human characteristics.
We have carefully mapped our curriculum to ensure that each topic builds on prior knowledge and understanding alongside the development of key skills such as an ability to interrogate sources, ask valuable questions and conduct research in an effective, efficient way. Beyond the classroom, we use our school grounds and trips to allow for rich, meaningful experiences that spark engagement and cement knowledge.
