At St Thomas’ we aim to create Geographers by developing a knowledge about the world and help them understand their place within it. Geography is vital to help develop transferable skills and knowledge which can aid children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Our language rich curriculum has been developed to inspire and ignite a curiosity about the wider world and spark questions about other cultures, world affairs and our impact on the world in which we live.
Through a progressive and carefully sequenced curriculum we aim to build knowledge and enhance this learning with opportunities for fieldwork and explore the use of physical and digital mapping to develop children’s understanding of their sense of place.
We want children to grow a love of Geography and become global citizens who can use their knowledge of physical and human processes to make meaningful links in the world, bring about change and prepare for a new and better tomorrow.
