At St Cuthbert Mayne Catholic Junior School, we fully agree with David Attenborough that “The world is full of wonders, but they become more wonderful, not less wonderful, when science looks at them”. We strive to encourage our pupils to be curious about the world around us, and to do this whilst ‘thinking like a geographer’.
We support the belief of the Geographical Association that Geography in the school curriculum ‘speaks directly to the young people’s curiosity, wonder and concern for the world around them. It is a subject that can provide them with the knowledge and competencies they need to understand and contribute to the world they live in’.
Through our sequenced curriculum our intent is that children will develop their knowledge about our planet through developing an understanding of physical geographical processes, a sense of locational awareness and an appreciation of the importance of human geography considerations in terms of the world’s impact on us and our impact on the world. This will be achieved through the development of geographical knowledge and skills through their learning journey at St Cuthbert Mayne.
