Geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. It should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
We use a variety of teaching and learning styles in order to develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding. The Geography programme of study is delivered through our school’s Topic Curriculum; whereby our pupils access all areas of the Geography National Curriculum through themed topics of study.
Each half term a focus topic is used to provide a context within which pupils explore related areas of the Geography Curriculum. The Topics we teach have been selected in order to enable meaningful and creative links to be made across curriculum areas and ensure that all areas of the Geography Curriculum can be covered.
At Monega Primary School, we also understand the value of extended learning through educational trips, visits and experts visiting our school.
