Through Geography, we aim to inspire curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will continue throughout their lives. We aim to equip children with knowledge about diverse places, people and environments, both close and far away. Our aim is that as our children progress, their growing knowledge about the world will deepen and links between physical and human processes will help them make sense of the world that they live in and how it has changed overtime.

Geography Passport

Each year at St Mary's, all pupils receive a 'Learning Passport'. This passport contains all of the skills and knowledge that they will learn that year. It also has all of the skills and knowledge they have covered in the past. Teachers refer to this passport regularly and pupils view it frequently to ensure 'sticky knowledge' is developed- this means that pupils are quickly recalling what they have already learnt so skills and knowledge can be built on each year.
