 At St. George’s we aim for children to acquire the essential characteristics of geographers:

  • An excellent knowledge of where places are and what they are like.
  • An excellent understanding of the ways in which places are interdependent and interconnected and how much human and physical environments are interrelated.
  • An extensive base of geographical knowledge and vocabulary.
  • Fluency in complex, geographical enquiry and the ability to apply questioning skills and use effective analytical and presentational techniques.
  • The ability to reach clear conclusions and develop a reasoned argument to explain findings.
  • Significant levels of originality, imagination or creativity as shown in interpretations and representations of the subject matter.
  • Highly developed and frequently utilised fieldwork and other geographical skills and techniques.
  • A passion for and commitment to the subject, and a real sense of curiosity to find out about the world and the people who live there.
  • The ability to express well-balanced opinions, rooted in very good knowledge and understanding about current and contemporary issues in society and the environment.

 

 

Geography Knowledge Organisers

At St. George's we use Knowledge Organisers to help us to learn, remember and revisit our learning. 

Some examples of our Geography Knowledge Organisers

Knowledge Category Icons. To help us to see connections and make links between topics and themes we use Knowledge Category Icons. The Knowledge Category Icons are used on our knowledge organisers, our classroom displays and on our IWBs to help us focus in on which specific geographical aspect or area of knowledge we are learning about in our lessons.
