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 grave relevance to the changing world. For example, weather and climate is taught when hurricane season is prevalent in order to use up to date case studies, oceans are taught due to the growing importance of reducing plastics in the ocean, Brexit is now taught within the Britain topic incorporating British Values. The Geography curriculum is constantly being adapted to suit the changing world in which we live.
The majority of examples that are used in Geography lessons are places in which I have travelled to and therefore have first-hand experiences in these places and with the people, such as Everglades in Florida which is being used in the ecosystem topic and palm oil usage in Borneo which has led to mass deforestation.
