At Thorpe Lea Primary School, we believe that Geography helps to encourage and produce answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. The geography curriculum enables children to develop knowledge and skills that can then be applied to other subjects providing cross curricular links that embed knowledge. Geography is, by nature, an investigative and inquisitive subject, with opportunities to instill in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We intend to equip children with geographical skills to develop their knowledge through studying places, people and natural and human environments. Through our teaching, we intend to produce thoughts and questions to encourage children to discover answers to their own questions by exploring and finding research to enable them to gain a greater understanding and knowledge of the world and their place in it.
Our pupils at Thorpe Lea will be curious and engaged learners regarding the world and its people.
Pupils will be able to learn and apply a range of investigative skills that assist their natural curiosity.
Pupils will develop an eagerness and fascination about the world, its people and its human and physical features that will strengthen their life long curiosity which will remain with them for the future.
Upcoming Geography Wow Days 2022-2023:
Geography WOW Days are a chance for the teachers to make more cross-curricular links with their planning. It is a chance for them to bring everything together that they have taught the children that term for their topic and to help bring Geography to life more! At the end of the day, the children will put on a showcase of their work and other year groups will be able to see what they have been learning about and talk to the children.
