Geography

What we intend through this curriculum

At Gisburn Road, we believe that Geography helps to provoke and answer questions about the natural and human worlds, encouraging children to develop a greater understanding of their world and their place in it.

It helps to develop a range of investigation and problem-solving skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can be used to promote children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Geography is, by nature an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills.

We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives; to promote children’s interest and understanding about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.

We also aim to explore our own local surroundings of Barnoldswick and Lancashire. We want children to understand their locality and the amazing environment that is on our own doorstep: - from canals, countryside, to our own school grounds and field.

At Gisburn Road Primary school Geography is the study of places. We explore the relationships between the world and its people. We study the location of the physical and human features of the earth. We examine how people affect, manage and sustain their environment.

 

Geographical enquiry helps children to learn about their immediate surroundings, the broader world and how the environment can affect their lives and determine decision making. The study of geography helps to develop a sense of identity and promotes responsible citizenship.
