Geography is a key curriculum area which we hope inspires and creates curiosity about the world.
At Morland we explore the diversity of places, people and resources, of natural and human environments. The students develop a greater understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As students progress through school, they increase their knowledge about the world and the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, connected and change over time.
We want our students, to learn to:
- familiarise pupils with the concepts of interdependence, development, globalisation and sustainability
- stimulate critical thinking about global issues, both at a whole school and pupil level
- promote greater awareness of poverty and sustainability
- explore alternative models of development and sustainability in the classroom
Through interactive lessons we provide students with the information that teaches them to understand about places and environments. The physical environment; climate, soil, population and other topics. To develop a mental map of our community, area, county, country and the world so that they can understand the “where” of places and events.
