At Temple Ewell we know that through geography we can develop our children’s understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. We understand that geography is, by its nature, an investigative subject, which will inspire in our children’s curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Geography is a natural way to promote our children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, unique people, resources and natural and human environments. We know high-level concepts such as place, space, scale, interdependence, physical/ human processes, environmental impact, sustainable development, cultural awareness and cultural diversity are central to our children’s geographical education. At Temple Ewell we believe that through geography, our children will become global citizens who will value and care for the planet and all its inhabitants.
Our curriculum is based on the national curriculum and is structured to building our children’s substantive knowledge of location, place human/physical processes and geography skills as well as develop their disciplinary knowledge of being a geographer. Children will leave our school with range of skills in information gathering, interpretation and communication that will allow them to apply them to many other subjects and allow them to be successful with all their future learning.
