At All Saints and Saint Margaret’s, we endeavour to give the children a genuine interest in geography and a real sense of curiosity about Glossop, the local area and the people who live here. We have created a scheme of work to enable our lessons to be exciting and interesting; where the children investigate a range of places – both in Britain and abroad – to help develop their knowledge and understanding of the Earth’s physical and human processes.
Through our teaching of geography, we aim to:
- Stimulate pupils’ enthusiasm for, and curiosity about their surroundings and the wider world.
- Increase their knowledge and understanding of the different communities and cultures within Glossop, Derbyshire, Britain and the world – and how these relate to each other.
- Increase their knowledge and understanding of the changing world.
- Encourage pupils to ask questions and propose solutions to environmental problems within Glossop and the wider world.
- Develop pupils’ competence in specific geographical skills (such as use of maps, secondary sources, ICT, aerial photographs, data logging equipment and considering evidence from a range of sources).
- Foster a sense of responsibility and respect for our school grounds, planet earth, its people and its resources.
We are committed to providing children with opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about their local area of Glossop so that they can develop of real sense of who they are, their heritage and what makes our local area unique and special.
