At Sarisbury Church of England Junior School, the geography we teach aims to be relevant, meaningful, exciting and challenging. It helps children make sense of the world in which they live and to respect the many cultures present in the world today. Through geography, children develop a sense of care and responsibility for the immediate location as well as for environmental issues which are current in today’s society. Through a creative and exciting curriculum, children in geography are encouraged to be brave, confident, original and to take calculated risks. By using outside locations (field trips), children have the opportunity to ‘touch’ geography through real life and first hand experiences. Each year group incorporates an enquiry into their topic, as it enables children to solve problems, decision make, investigate and develop their thinking skills.
