At St John's CE Primary School, our geography curriculum meets the national curriculum's statutory needs, and is designed to meet the needs of all children at St John's CE Primary School. Geography is valued as an important part of children's entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum and is planned to build on disciplinary and substantive knowledge continually.
The geography curriculum inspires our children with a curiosity and fascination about the world. Teaching equips our children 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.
In Reception, children begin to develop children sense of place and community as described in the EYFS curriculum area of ‘understanding the world’ by providing opportunities for children to develop their awareness of home, family and the school environment. Children begin to recognise and compare some environments that are different from their own.
