Our intent for Geography
At Spurcroft we deliver a knowledge-based and vocabulary-rich geography curriculum. We believe that Geography helps us to ask and answer questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Children are encouraged to develop a knowledge of the world, from their local everyday experience to the global picture, as well as their place in it. The Geography curriculum builds their sense of what is where in the world and the ways in which things are connected – and why. We want all our children to be aware of the environmental and humanitarian issues facing our planet and understand that their daily lives and actions have an impact. We want them to actively engage in conservation work and to become thinking, questioning and responsible people both now and in the future.
We want our children to think and act like geographers and to be inspired by and responsible for the world in which they live.
