At Clinton, our Geography lessons enable children to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world we live in, as well as their place in it. The strands of our Geography and History curriculum allow children to reach new understandings by making connections between areas of their learning; and make progress by building on prior learning when accessing new topics. By enabling children to understand geography and the complexity of our planet, we believe that our children will develop respect for the physical environment and the diverse range of cultures and beliefs that make up our world.
Through the Geography curriculum at Clinton, we inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and people within it; and promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. We seek to broaden children's real-life experiences both inside and outside of school through educational visits, visitors, exploration and discovery, including fieldwork. We encourage the use of cross curricular links, encompassing the use of subjects such as technology, art, and maths as well as allowing opportunities to develop our literacy skills.
When teaching Geography, we want to inspire in children a fascination about the world which will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Geography lessons are linked to a range of the transferable skills, particularly those in the communication and problem-solving strands, so that geography teaching equips pupils to collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork, interpret a range of sources of geographical information, and communicate geographical information in a variety of ways. Through the high-quality Geography teaching at Clinton, our pupils are equipped with the skills and knowledge to take into their daily lives, better informing their personal choices and enabling them to become global citizens who interact with the world with care, tolerance and empathy.
