Geography at Tenbury Primary Academy
Being a Geographer at Tenbury CE Primary Academy
Geography gives pupils an understanding of the world around them, its environments, places near and far, and the processes that create and affect them.
At Tenbury, we are excited to find out more about our world in the classroom and experience practical fieldwork in our local area. We have strong links with our friends at Maramba A Primary School in Tanzania, which gives our children access to experiencing daily life in different parts of the world. With climate change, human impact and the environment part of our curriculum, our children ask big questions about the world they live in.
- Mrs J. Reeves (Tenbury CE Primary Academy Geography Lead)
At Tenbury Primary Academy, we aim to develop curiosity and fascination about local surroundings, the wider world and the people in it. Through purposeful research and questioning, both inside and outside the classroom, children are able to develop their geographical skills. We encourage the use of cross curricular links, encompassing the use of subjects such as technology, art, and maths as well as allowing opportunities to develop our literacy skills.
Children will have knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. To be well rounded citizens, we believe children need to understand the differences between places and their cultures and be able to recognise how these change over time. All of this will support them in making sense of the world and the challenges that the future may hold for our society and environments.
