Geography is crucial to our curriculum at Wellington Primary School in order to enable our children to develop into well-rounded global citizens with a deep understanding and knowledge of the world and their place in it.
At Wellington the Geography curriculum has been planned so that children will:
- Have an excellent knowledge of where places are and what they are like, both in Britain and the wider world.
- Gain an understanding of the ways in which places are interdependent and interconnected and how much human and physical environments are interrelated.
- Develop of real sense of what makes our local area unique and special.
- Be able to interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes and aerial photographs.
- Have the ability to express well-balanced opinions, rooted in very good knowledge and understanding about current issues in society and the environment.
- Use geographical language to communicate their learning in a variety of outcomes and to a range of different audiences.
- Develop a genuine interest in the subject and a real sense of curiosity about the world and the people who live here.
