The aim of geography teaching here at St Joseph’s Primary School is to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils with 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. 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. Geographical knowledge provides the tools and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.




From Stacksteads to Brazil, we learn about many exciting places around the world!  We plan our lessons creatively with the support of the Lancashire Key Learning Document. 

How can I help my child to learn well in this subject?

Exploring the world, however possible, is key to developing understanding in this subject!

This may be virtual or ideally through experiencing different places and cultures first-hand.   Watching film clips or documentaries is also a good way of helping your child understand the wider world.


Regular discussion with your child about what they have learnt, encouraging them to use new vocabulary, is also helpful in securing good development in this subject.
