Geography Subject Intent

At Stag Lane, our aim is for children to develop a sound understanding of the world in which we live. We want children to explore, appreciate and understand how the world has evolved. Geography explores the relationship between the world and its people through the study of place and environment. Through Geography, children acquire knowledge of a range of different cultures and traditions, which helps them to learn tolerance and understanding of other people and environments. In this way, Geography contributes to children’s cultural, social, spiritual and moral development.

We are committed to developing children’s curiosity about local, national and international localities by broadening their knowledge of people, places and environments across the world. Our curriculum is driven through the following geographical concepts (Investigating places; Investigating patterns and Communicating geographically) which are explored in a wide breadth of topics. Our curriculum is arranged so that pupils return to these same concepts repeatedly, gradually building an understanding of them. Our Long-term plan details how pupils will be given opportunities to relate topics to previously studied topics to deepen understanding.
