Our Geography curriculum has been created to inspire the children to gain lifelong skills and to allow them to understand and explore the world around them. Our curriculum at Saxon develops a range of geography skills and builds upon knowledge such as understanding geographical vocabulary. Children actively learn from maps, globes, photographs and videos to locate, research and compare places in the UK and Worldwide. Through the use of the local area, children develop their knowledge and understanding of human and physical geography. We believe Shepperton is an amazing place for children to evolve into young geographers; learning is then expanded to focus on geography on a global scale.
Annual events including International Week help the children celebrate the different cultures within our school community and provide children with the opportunity to appreciate wider geography within the curriculum.
