The study of geography is about more than just memorising places on a map. It’s about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exist across continents. And in the end, it’s about using all that knowledge to help bridge divide and bring people together. -Barack Obama
The aim of the Geography curriculum at Sherrier is to inspire curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We aim to ensure that our pupils are equipped with the knowledge and understanding of the diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments of the world in order to create life-long global citizens who know how they can make a difference and who want to. Each enquiry question is designed to meet the aims of the National Curriculum whilst providing our pupils with exciting opportunities to enquire, investigate and explore the key geographical concepts. We want the children to love learning about geography both inside and outside the classroom. We don’t want to just take them around our local area. We want to take them to a mountain, to the source of a river, to a volcano, to the other side of the world and many more places.
