At Great Malvern Primary School, we strongly believe that high quality geography teaching offers our children the foundations for a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. The geography curriculum at Great Malvern enables children to develop knowledge and progressive skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can and are used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The aim , ultimately is to allow children to know more, remember more and understand more
Children at Great Malvern are constantly exposed and immersed in developing their vocabulary acquisition. This key geographical language, increases children’s knowledge and understanding of not only the specific matter they are currently studying, but of the world they live in. Geography in our school is about developing our student’s ideas, philosophy and geographical thinking by allowing them to investigate and study the environment and world around them, regardless of their gender, ethnicity or ability which we achieve with a balanced and broad curriculum.
Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, which will remain with them for the rest of their lives; to promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
