Geography


At Cheriton we believe Geography should be taught cross-curricular manner which encourages children to appreciate comprehend and examine the world in which we live. In Geography we aim to develop a strong interest in our children of their own surroundings and the wider world. We want to enable pupils to develop an appreciation and understanding of the variety of physical and human features and conditions.

Children at Cheriton build upon their learning – year on year – through a development of Geographical skills, understanding and technical knowledge. We deliver this through a range of whole-class teaching, group activities and individual tasks. As Geography lends itself to cross-curricular teaching, content will be learnt in other subjects beyond discrete lessons. Within these lessons, children will be given the opportunity to practise, consolidate and extend their Geographical skills, along with peer assessment. The children are given the opportunity to take part in a range of exciting fieldtrips, both within the local area and further afield, such as London. This enhances their learning and allows them to participate in ‘real life’ experiences.
The children at Cheriton are given an exciting opportunity to visit our Forest School area several times a year, experiencing all four seasons and learning about our environment. Forest School is an inspirational process that offers all learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a natural environment. This allows our children to develop their geographical skills in the outside environment.

Studying Geography provides children with a holistic understanding of our planet. This prepares children to understand topics impacting our planet such as climate change, global warming and pollution, among others.
As Geography is often taught in a cross-curricular manner it enables the children to develop their wider skills set along with their geographical knowledge and understanding too.
