The aim of geography teaching at St Richard's is to inspire children to gain a deeper understanding of the world and its people. Geography helps children to understand the cultures of people from across the world and see how people and places are connected. We encourage children to take responsibility for their place in society and to respect and look after the environment, we link this with our fantastic team of eco-warriors.
We develop the children's geographical knowledge and skills in many ways, including practical activities such as map reading, local walks, examining photographs and objects from locations around the world. We study the location of places around the world, climate, customs, land use and many other aspects of human and physical geography. Children learn geography through first hand experiences in real life settings.
