At Coldean we strive to provide our children with high-quality geography education that will inspire them and encourage a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people.
Children learn about places & patterns and how to communicate their geographical understanding. Through our creative, engaging curriculum the children learn how to draw and interpret maps and develop the skills of research, investigation, analysis and problem-solving.
Children explore different cultures, environments, people and landscapes and we encourage investigation and to question what they have discovered.
They undertake geographical enquiries to learn about their local area and compare their lives to those living in other regions in the United Kingdom, Europe and the wider world. Resources and teaching strategies reflect and value the diversity of children’s experience and provide them with a comprehensive understanding of people and communities beyond their immediate experience.
By integrating our Eco Schools ethos throughout the curriculum we ensure that our geography teaching also motivates children to recognise the importance of sustainable development for their future.
