At Southmead Primary School, our vision is that the teaching and learning of Geography provides pupils with an understanding of our local environment, our location within Great Britain and the ever changing wider world. The teaching will develop a curiosity and fascination of the subject, leading to children developing respect and appreciation of the similarities and differences between cultures from all over the globe. Geography lessons will ensure that our children acquire the necessary skills to understand physical and human features with the use of maps, atlases, photos and the internet to ensure a well-balanced and interactive method of learning for all pupils.
Our Geography curriculum provides learning opportunities and experiences that help children grow and develop as individuals and as members of our local community. We aim for all children to understand their own importance in the role of making our local environment sustainable and to recognise the impacts that they can have on our planet.
