At St Mary's school, we have amazing school grounds and a beautiful local area. Our Geography curriculum and our intention is to inspire children’s curiosity about the world in which we live and to ignite a love of learning. We intend to equip children with geographical skills to develop their knowledge by studying places and people, and natural and human environments. We aim to deepen understanding of the Earth’s human and physical forms and processes. Through our teaching, we intend our pupils to gain a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, and to provoke thought and encourage children to question and discover through exploration and research.
At St. Mary's, we provide rich educational visits that enable further opportunity to learn outside of the classroom; such as visiting a city zoo, a seaside aquarium and visiting the Dorset coastline at Durdle Door. Our aim is to promote cultural capital in all pupils that attend our school and develop a rich vocabulary, which will equip our children with the skills they will need to succeed.
