St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Together we grow in God's love, learning to be the best we can be.


The children will be given opportunities to study their local and global environment using atlases, globes, photographs and maps. Where appropriate and possible, field trips are arranged for a more direct experience of the environment.


In teaching Geography we aim to:

  • stimulate children's interest in their surroundings and in the variety of human and physical conditions on the Earth's surface;
  • foster children's sense of wonder at the beauty of the world around them;
  • help children to develop an informed concern about the quality of the environment and the future of the human habitat; and
  • thereby enhance children's sense of responsibility for the care of the Earth and its people.
