Intent of our Geography Curriculum
At Bidston Avenue Primary School, we encourage our children to develop a greater understanding of their world and their place in it. By asking questions, we help them to develop a range of investigation and problem-solving skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can be used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives; to promote children’s interest and understanding about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
Starting with the locality, we prepare our children for the ‘bigger world’ using a broad range of resources, including trips. The resources we use also provide us with the tools to feed their curious minds as well as quench their thirst for general knowledge and current affairs, which will develop them as citizens for the future.
