Intent of the Geography Curriculum
Here at Redfield Educate Together, we love Geography. We explore, both physically and virtually, all corners of our natural and human world, and immerse ourselves in our local community. We believe that a high-quality geography education should inspire children to develop a sense of curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
We focus on supporting our children to gain a deeper knowledge of diverse places, people, resources, natural and human environments, together with an understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
Geography helps give children a better world view and develops a host of transferable skills. Through deep questioning, we encourage the children to have fun and be curious as they explore the world. They are given lots of opportunities to investigate and make enquires about their local area and community.
We believe that it takes courage and creativity to make the world a better place. Children are encouraged to challenge stereotypes, prejudices and cultural misunderstandings. We encourage learners to think critically and widen the scope of the stories they know about other people and cultures. Learners are supported to become more aware of ‘what they don’t know’ and to recognise that everyone has multiple stories about themselves to share.
