Geography Mission Statement

At Seven Stars we aim to provide a high quality Geography curriculum that inspires in our children a curiosity and fascination with the world and its people.

Starting with the immediate environment, the wider local area and holiday destinations in Early Years and Key Stage One, we strive to provide exciting, enjoyable learning in geography that open doors to knowledge and skills, the world, health, creativity and language. Teaching through our termly Learning Journeys, we seek to equip pupils with knowledge of the world at a local, national and international level.

By studying the human and physical geography of locations near and far, we develop geographical skills using maps, globes, photographs and digital resources to locate, name and identify countries, continents and oceans.  We start with the world-wide perspective before deep-diving into specific locations, always making comparisons with our own experiences and environment.

We want our children to be able to ask and answer geographical questions, making connections between learning in other subjects to broaden and deepen their knowledge and understanding of the world.
