Geography statement of intent
By the time they leave Northgate we aim for our children to;
Have developed their experiences and understanding of Geography and to respect the environment around them and in the wider world.
At Northgate physical, human and environmental geography are taught through topic areas. The children are encouraged to emerse themselves in a variety of learning opportunities to secure their knowledge of places, processes and geographical skills. School visits and focused activities ensure that the children understand through experience and practical application.
We believe that a high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.
