At Sir Thomas Abney, we believe that Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. The geography curriculum at STA enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
The curriculum is designed to ensure that children are equipped with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a growing understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress through the school, they will deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical concepts, knowledge and skills are progressive and carefully sequenced to provide the framework and approaches that provide explanation of how the Earth’s features are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
