Geography at Richard Hill
At Richard Hill we believe that Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. We will enable pupils to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can and are used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
It is our intent for the Geography element of our school curriculum to provide pupils with an inquisitiveness and wonder about the place they live and the world around them. Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills with this in mind teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about contrasting places, people and develop an understanding of natural and human environments. This together should provide pupils with a deepened understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their increasing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. We want our pupils to gain confidence and have practical hand on experiences of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
