At Fulfen we wish our pupils to leave us with knowledge about the physical and human aspects of the world we live in, as well as the geographical tootlkit of skills to further their understanding. We wish to instil in them a curiosity to travel, to study and to make a difference in the world. In our rapidly changing environment, fuelled by climate change and the change and growth of superpowers and the challenge of global migration, it is more important that ever that children have the knowledge and skills needed to face the future.
We have three main aims in our teaching of geography at Fulfen. Firstly, for the children to have a strong understanding of the locations of places in the world and the human and physical features of these places. Secondly, we wish for children to understand how humans interact with their physical environment. Thirdly, we want children to be able to communicate geographically.
We ensure we meet these aims by teaching geographical skills through engaging geography topics, matched to the National Curriculum.
Geography is going places at Fulfen!
