Geography

At Newchurch, it is our mission to develop, in every child, a positive attitude and an enthusiasm towards the subject of geography. The Geography Curriculum is concerned with the study of places, the human and physical processes which shape them and the people who live in them. We believe Geography helps children to gain a greater understanding of the ways of life and cultures of people in their locality and in other places. At Newchurch we teach discreet geography lessons focusing on the following knowledge, skills and understanding:

  • Location and place knowledge

  • Human and physical geography

  • Enquiry and investigation

  • Fieldwork

  • Interpret a range of sources of geographical information

  • Communicate geographical information
