At St Cross we use a variety of teaching and learning styles in our geography lessons. We encourage children to ask as well as answer geographical questions. We offer them the opportunity to use a variety of data, such as maps, statistics, graphs, pictures and aerial photographs. We enable them to use ICT in geography lessons where this serves to enhance their learning. Children take part in role-play and discussions and they present reports to the rest of the class. They engage in a wide variety of problem-solving activities such as researching a local environmental problem or a current issue.
Our curriculum will equip children with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources, natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of our planet’s key physical and human processes.
