Geography at Norwood

Geography is the exploration and understanding of the World in which we live. The subject is part and parcel of our personal survival kit. It is a way of looking at the World that focuses our learning on what the environment and places are like, the human and physical processes that shape them, the people who live in them and why these places are important to us.  (Scoffham, 2004)

Our Aims
Throughout our Geography Curriculum at Norwood, all pupils will:
·   enjoy studying the World around them.
·   develop their knowledge and understanding of places in local, regional, national, international and global contexts.
·   develop knowledge and understanding of the physical elements of geography, including weather and climate, water forms (oceans, rivers, lakes), landforms (valleys, mountains, plains, hills), animal and plant life.
·   develop their knowledge and understanding of human geography by looking at populations, settlements (Romans, Vikings) and communications (transport, telecommunications).
·   understand the World and the part that natural resources play (rocks, soil, minerals, plants, animals, weather) and the possibilities of protecting and managing environments.
·   develop an awareness of the environment and the environmental issues within it (Eco and Forest Schools).
·   develop practical skills in the use of resources (maps, atlases, compasses) and will be able to apply these skills when applicable with confidence and understanding.

We want our children at Norwood tobe given the opportunity to stimulate their enquiring, curious minds to the World around them.
