At Colton, we believe that Geography helps to provoke and answer questions about the physical and human worlds.
We know children in Colton have a good understanding of their local area, in Geography we aim to widen their view to see the world and their place in it as a whole. Geography helps to develop a range of investigation and problem-solving skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas. Geography is, by nature an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills.
We believe there needs to be a key focus on fieldwork and getting out into the wide open world around us. 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. In a world of ever changing divisions, we aim to show the children their place and how we all fit together into one global community. We aim to develop 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.
