Our Vision for Geography at St Teresa's

At St Teresa's we believe that  high quality geography education is paramount to inspiring in our children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.  We believe that our teaching, through a rich and varied creative curriculum, will 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.

Working as a Geographer at St Teresa's

Our children will be encouraged to:

  • apply geographical skills and processes to finding, organising, selecting, analysing and interpreting primary and secondary sources of evidence
  • pursue a line of enquiry to answer a relevant and engaging geographical question about an issue, place, process or topic
  • construct and communicate new knowledge and understanding
  • mastering key concepts, generalisations and abstract ideas
  • achieve progressively more challenging subject outcomes
  • generate further questions to investigate
