“The peculiar value of geography lies in its fitness to nourish the mind with ideas and furnish the imagination with pictures”
At Holy Cross we want to encourage all learners to develop a curiosity and fascination about their world and its people, a curiosity that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
Our Geography curriculum nurtures our learners inquisitive thinking and questioning skills, encouraging them to deepen their knowledge, understanding and appreciation of our local area and its place within the wider geographical context.
Links are carefully planned between geography and our curriculum drivers so that children contextualise their learning and shape their understanding of the world on a local, national and global scale. This allows learners to develop their knowledge about the world, helping them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.
Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
