Our Pupils’ perspective

In Geography, we learn we about the world the world around us and why it changes.


Subject Leader

Mrs Holden is our Geography subject lead. She loves to travel, exploring different landscapes, languages, cultures and most importantly to explore food from different cultures. She enjoys finding out how physical and human features were formed and believes God created a beautiful, but somewhat unpredictable, but fascinating world. Her vision is to equip the children with the Geographical skills they need to safely explore the world around them, building on their knowledge and enjoying God’s creations as much as she does.


Subject Intent

Learning about Geography in our school develops an understanding and respect of diverse cultures and lifestyles around our wonderful world. Children will realise that God’s values are not geographically centred and our school scripture can travel with them wherever they will go. They will learn to respect the planet, realising the danger it poses when harmed, and through self reflection will respect God’s creation and all that breathes on it.
