Geography at Lucas Vale aims to inspire in pupils a fascination and curiosity about the world and its people. Teaching aims to equip pupils with a knowledge about diverse places, people and environments, together with a deeper understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
By following a curriculum which is engaging and relevant, children learn about the world from a local, national and international perspective. Our aim is that by the time they leave us, they are fully aware of what it is to be a global citizen with local, national and global responsibilities.
Through each new topic, opportunities are planned to enable children to acquire the age-appropriate skills and knowledge relating to:
• location – understanding and using maps and globes
• place knowledge
• human and physical geography
• geographical skills and fieldwork
Educational trips and technology are also used to engage children by supporting and deepening their understanding of the topics they study.
