At Welland academy our Geography curriculum is designed to develop children’s curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them throughout their lives. Geography provides children with the opportunity to explore and discover the world around them from their very own classroom. It helps children to understand the world, its environments, and places near and far, and the processes that create and affect the world.
We want to equip 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. We understand that Geography is a necessary partner for other subjects, for example History and that it allows us to understand past people and events in a deeper, more meaningful way. In a changing world we want children to have a love for geographical learning, gaining knowledge and skills through high quality teaching both inside and outside the classroom. As the future generation responsible for our planet, we want our children to have a sense of respect for the world and everything in it.
