At Micklem we aim to inspire our pupils’ curiosity to find out about the world and their place in it. Children develop their understanding of the world at the local, national and global level, and of how people and the environment interact.
Geography is taught as a discrete subject focusing on the key skills of investigating places, investigating patterns and communicating geographically.
Our Geography curriculum builds from exploring the children’s experience of similarities and differences in their own environment to exploring different areas and geographical features of the wider world. Throughout we teach key geographical vocabulary and provide opportunities for children to investigate maps and conduct fieldwork investigations.
A Micklem geographer will develop the ability to think critically and spatially; use maps, images and technology and identify, research and answer questions. A Micklem geographer will develop the ability to communicate this understanding in discussions, presentations, writing and role plays.
