Geography at Emneth Academy
Geography teaches an understanding of places and environments. It motivates children to find out about the physical world, enabling them to recognize the importance of sustainable development for the future of mankind.
The Trust Geography curriculum is designed so that it is ambitious for all learners. Knowledge, skills and concepts are clearly outlined in an age-appropriate, progressive way from Y1-Y6, so that the children’s understanding can be extended, year upon year.
In Geography, children learn about their local area and compare their life in this area with that in other regions in the UK and the rest of the world. They learn how to draw and interpret maps and they develop the skills of research, investigation, analysis and problem-solving. Through their growing knowledge and understanding of human geography, they gain an appreciation of life in other cultures.
At Emneth, we strive for all pupils to achieve their maximum potential, by having high expectations and excellent standards. Our stimulating Geography curriculum ensures the children develop a love of learning, which should engage them into becoming life-long learners.
