With a wide and wonderful world to explore, geography is an essential subject in opening our children’s eyes to the incredible wonders of the planet around them. It helps pupils to gain a better understanding of places, people and environments and how to work towards a better future by protecting our ever-changing world. Through gaining knowledge of what places are like, how they compare with others and how their location impacts upon them, children will be able to develop greater awareness and links between their place in the world alongside those of others. Through a tailored geography curriculum embedded within the contexts of focus topics at Eaton Park, the subject provides meaningful contexts within cross-curricular links that make learning pertinent and provide geography with a high profile across the academy. Exciting opportunities encourage children to enquire about the world around them and question and debate how things work or could be changed, readying to the next step in the learning journeys.
