Geography

Intent

At Idle our geography inspires us to get out there and experience the world, its people and places. Geography helps us to experience ‘life in all it’s fullness’ by connecting us to others around the globe, deepening our relationships with the Earth, and discovering the wondrous places, people, and environments around the planet.

Implementation

At Idle we develop our geographers by:

  • walking in the world – through fieldwork, visitors, reading, watching short films, and listening to people’s stories
  • consciously reflecting on how our lives are affected by geography
  • noticing, talking about and exploring the world around us
  • building up our mental maps
  • learning ot use the language of geography
  • learning how to read maps, atlases and globes
  • making observations, collecting, and analysing data
  • interpreting a range of geographical information

Impact

Through our bespoke curriculum we develop fantastic geographers who:

  • are curious and notice the world around them
  • understand and appreciate our place in the world
  • talk about how geography influences their daily lives
  • have empathy and appreciation for the diversity of the planet – its people, places, plants and animals
  • constantly add to their mental map
  • use their imagination to travel to places near and far
  • are responsible global citizens
  • are confident to explore the world around them
