At St Bartholomew’s, we hope that our geography sparks pupil’s curiosity to make children develop a hunger to learn more about the world around us.
We teach geography through topics and instil skills into the following categories; mapping, fieldwork, enquiry and investigation, communication and use of computers. Each year group has a specific focus on vocabulary to learn and the geography learning is embedded through many cross curricular links. We use a mixture of skill based work linked to areas of knowledge we want children to grasp as well as some enquiry based learning used through our Collins scheme.
