We are Geographers at Parkhill Junior

Geography at Parkhill Junior School

Through the teaching of geography at Parkhill Junior School, we strive to instil a lifelong excitement and curiosity about our world that will equip our pupils to become responsible, engaged members of the global community. Thinking geographically about our changing world will enable our children to understand how the world works, how our lives are connected to others and how our choices are shaped by and impact on the environment.

Comprehensive understanding of the ways in which places are interdependent and interconnected

An extensive base of geographical knowledge and vocabulary

Fluency in complex, geographical enquiry and the ability to apply questioning skills, as well as effective presentation techniques

The ability to reach clear conclusions and explain their findings

The ability to express well-balanced opinions, rooted in an excellent knowledge and understanding about current issues in society and the environment

A genuine interest in the subject and a real sense of curiosity about the world and the people who live here.
