Being a geographer
“In our changing world nothing changes more than Geography”
Pearl S. Buck
At Charlton, our geography curriculum is underpinned by our four curriculum drivers: Wonder, Knowledge, Discovery and Responsibility.
Our Geography curriculum also gives pupils the understanding and the vocabulary to describe the world in which they live. Through our carefully sequenced curriculum, children gain factual knowledge, including locational knowledge and are able to make comparisons and identify differences.
Our progressive curriculum provides the necessary knowledge to build an increasingly complex understanding of place, with children starting their geography educational journey in Reception and building progressively through to Year 6.
The geography curriculum at Charlton enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas. We seek to inspire in our children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives; to promote their interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
