At St Christopher’s School, Geography teaching allows children to SHINE, creating a sense of belonging, identity and purpose within their lives. We strive to help children make sense of the quickly changing world around them, as well as helping them to understand the crucial part they play in the local and wider community. Through high quality , enquiry based teaching and learning, children develop an interest, fascination and desire to investigate a variety of human and physical characteristics of different places, both local and afar. We want our children to be well rounded citizens, helping them to understand and appreciate the differences between places, environments and cultures. Children will be given many opportunities to undertake fieldwork in order to gather, understand, analyse and present data about their local environment, thus deepening their understanding and appreciation for where they live as well as evoking a passion for geography.
