‘The study of geography is about more than just memorising places on a map. It’s about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. And in the end, it’s about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together’. Barack Obama.
At St Francis, we believe that Geography inspires children to enquire, explore and deepen their understanding of the natural and human world. We ensure that Geography stimulates curiosities and fascination in children about the world around them by providing regular, systematic teaching. We want children to enjoy Geography and develop their skills and knowledge, not only in the classroom, but also by providing opportunities to explore contrasting areas through fieldwork and educational visits. To build an awareness of differing cultures and populations, which will prepare them for the rest of their lives.
