develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places
understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time
are competent in geographical skills
We intend for our children to develop a curiosity and fascination about their world, which enables them to engage with and understand environmental and geographical factors that affect the world. Through the development of knowledge around sources, Geographical skills and their own questioning of human impact on the environment, children will become competent individuals with versatile Geographical skills and knowledge.
Children explore Geography through a wide range of topics and hands-on opportunities. This exploration is implemented with a range of sources, media, visits, workshops, local fieldwork and virtual experiences that enhance the development of knowledge and skills. Our curriculum is planned as such that it provides our children with regular opportunities to revise and revisit their Geographical learning. Children begin their journey by having an understanding of the fundamentals and developing Geographical knowledge further which is then built on and developed throughout their time in school. They present their knowledge in a variety of ways, and through a variety of other curriculum areas, both teacher and child-led.
Children of MBHT leave school as geographically competent individuals with a knowledge and curiosity of the world that equips them with relevant life skills. Children are respectful of current, diverse and cultural places, people and environments in our world. This is then a platform for children to explore their future with a well-informed knowledgeable understanding of the Earth.
