Geography

 

 
 

Geography is about curiosity, exploration, and discovery. It gives you the power to see places in new ways, even imaginary ones. Geography also

helps you to understand and make sense of the world.

To be a successful geographer you should:

  • think of your own questions
  • search for your own answers
  • talk, watch, and listen to people, animals, plants, and places
  • think about who you are and the effects of your actions on the rest of the world.

Geographers use many different ‘-ings’ to research, share, and act on discoveries, including:

observing, reading, drawing, rubbing, digging, mapping, climbing, conversing, comparing, photographing, testing, seeking, peeking, writing, thinking, collecting, graphing, remembering, sorting and searching.

Programmes of Study

A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching 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. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.

Aims

The national curriculum for geography aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • 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
  • are 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
