Geography at St James's
Geography is a dynamic and thought-provoking subject, covering current global issues affecting both humans and the environment. Across our curriculum pupils will take a worldwide journey to discover; the challenge of natural hazards, the management of urban Issues, the impact of globalisation/development, the changing physical landscape, climate change and weather and climate.
Throughout this journey our aim is to create “Good Geographers”. Knowledge is built to widen understanding of issues that impact the world that our pupils are growing up in. Underpinning this is Geography SWAT. We develop pupils’ ability to Speak, Write, Act and Think like a Geographer. This includes; map skills, graphical skills, literacy, numeracy and the skill of revision. These skills are embedded throughout the curriculum and are an integral part of the departments drive to develop not only skilled geographers, but also lifelong learners; facilitating our pupils to strive for Achieving Excellence. Our curriculum aims to foster a love for the subject by delivering lessons that are engaging, challenging and examine the misconceptions / stereotypes that can often blur our view of the wider world; supporting the school’s central ethos of Caring for Others.
