As a lover of nature,the outdoors and the wider world, I love to explore the world God gave us to enjoy and experience different cultures and countries. Therefore, I fully believe a high quality geography education will inspire pupils and add curiosity and fascination about the world that God has given to us. This will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
The vision at St. Wilfrid’s is that all children understand and are curious about the world they live in, from Local to European to Continental Geography. We want knowledge to be embedded within our pupils for the rest of their lives.
Children should be able to locate knowledge using a range of atlases and globes. They should know and understand human and physical geography and be able to use this information to compare and contrast countries to deepen their knowledge about diversity and environments.
