At Catforth, we are passionate about geography! We enjoy practical geography activities and love getting out into our local community. We explore our links within our village, region and to the wider UK. We also have a broad curriculum, learning about countries and places in every continent.
Geography teaches an understanding of places and environments. Through their work in geography, children learn about their local area, and they compare their life in this area with that in other regions in the United Kingdom and in the rest of the world. They learn how to draw and interpret maps, and they develop the skills of research, investigation, analysis and problem-solving. Through their growing knowledge and understanding of human geography, children gain an appreciation of life in other cultures. Geography teaching also motivates children to find out about the physical world, and enables them to recognise the importance of sustainable development for the future of mankind.
We think it is important to build geography skills, working on mapping and fieldwork so we can create confident geographers.
