Geography at Cawston Grange Primary School

At Cawston Grange Primary School, our children are given a range of opportunities to learn Geography through first hand experiences in real life settings. Our Geography inspires in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the diverse world we live in and its people. It is challenging, motivating, topical and fun!

In the diverse world we live in, it is fundamental to develop children’s understanding of the wider world, focusing on not only the physical geography of places but to also learn about a range of cultures and its people. It is our vision to stimulate our own children’s interest and love for Geography by giving them opportunities to explore their own surroundings, develop an interest and understanding of diverse places, as well as understanding the value of our Earth’s resources and the physical and human features that shape our world.

Children develop their knowledge and understanding of the world as they progress through the school and we also aim to instil in our children transferrable skills which a subject like Geography offers.

We thrive to ensure our children have a broad insight into how Geography can be incorporated into daily living, thus increasing the children’s ability to become responsible citizens and to ensure they are empowered with the knowledge of sustainable living in the 21st Century.

In short, Geography matters!
