Our aim in the teaching of Geography at Coupe Green is to encourage our children to grow into global citizens by developing their curiosity in both their local surroundings and places and environments in the wider world. We aim to provide opportunities for our children to develop their geographical skills and become well-rounded citizens as they discover new places and learn about other cultures.
Following the National Curriculum, we aim for all our pupils to: –
- develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes.
- understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time.
- become competent in the geographical skills needed to:
- collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes.
- interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS).
- communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
