The high-quality geography curriculum at Charlton Manor Primary School is intended to inspire curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with the children for the rest of their lives.
Geography teaching at Charlton Manor Primary School has a wide application to everyday life, teaching the children to enjoy learning about the world and to have a better understanding of how people live in different locations. Through active, real life learning opportunities, children not only learn about the world in which they live, but also how it works and fits together. Our children are supported and encouraged to gain confidence and have practical experiences of geographical knowledge, understanding and learning new skills. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, understanding and reading maps and the formation and use of landscapes and environments.
Our geography curriculum provides opportunities for all pupils, including SEND and disadvantaged pupils, to develop the skills, knowledge and independence to continue their future geography learning when they leave our primary school.
