Geography at Greatfields sets out to inspire pupils’ curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Greatfields geography equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils develop their knowledge about the world it will help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes.
The topics that are chosen within the geography curriculum have relevance to the changing world. For example, students begin their learning experience gaining new and practical skills in Geography at the start of Year 7. This moves on to a topic on the UK before widening further afield and covering topics further from ‘home’. The Geography curriculum is constantly being adapted to suit the changing world in which we live.
Fieldwork is an integral part of Geography and as such we aim to deliver a fieldwork experience for all year groups at Greatfields.
