"The study of geography is about more than just memorizing places on a map. It's about understanding the complexity of our world and appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents".
Geography at St Richard’s
Geography at St Richard's
We believe it is important that we give our children valuable opportunities for the development of geographical investigation. We feel that children should be give opportunities to understand places of the world, including countries and continents. We believe Geography helps answer questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. The geography curriculum enables children to develop knowledge which they can then use across other subjects for further development.
At St Richard's we teach geography to all children from Nursery to Year 6. Children learn core vocabulary as well as the culture and traditions from other countries. The lessons range from classroom discussions to outside practical geographical work. The children enjoy geography lessons and this is evidenced through their books and pupil voice.
