At Charlton we believe that geography should stimulate an interest in and a sense of wonder about places. We want to help the children make sense of a complex and constantly changing world. We will explain where places are, how places and landscapes are formed and in what way people and their environment can interact successfully.
We will also look at how a diverse range of economies, societies and environments are interconnected. We will encourage pupils to build on their own experiences of investigating places to those global in scale.
Geography prepares young people with the knowledge, skills and understanding to make sense of their world and to face the challenges that will come their way in the future.
We want our children to be keen to enquire, research and find answers about the fascinating and powerful world they live in.
