“The study of geography is about more than just memorising places on a map. It is about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents and in the end it's about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together.”
Geography: Our Intent for the subject.
At Walter Evans we aim for children to foster and inspire sense of curiosity about the world around them, both terrestrial and marine. That the children will combine a love of learning and the opportunity to develop a nurturing respect for both our local and global communities. The children at Walter Evans are encouraged to develop their self confidence in being able to understand both their role as a global citizen combined with how human and physical features of the world are interdependent of each other. Children will have the opportunity to work collaboratively to: work with a range of data collected via fieldwork, interpret a range of sources such as maps and aerial photos, to communicate geographical information in a variety of ways.
How it fits within our school vision.
Our school vision is rooted in the Christian faith. As a proud Church of England school, our vision is underpinned by the Church of England’s vision for education. This vision identifies four interlinking aims for all our pupils and, at its heart, lies LOVE (Luke 10:27).
It is this LOVE for God, for our neighbours and ourselves, that forms our Christian foundation to underpin all that we do.
At Walter Evans we believe in a broad and balanced curriculum where all subjects are valued. A broad and balanced curriculum will equip our children with a breadth of knowledge and skills in all areas of the curriculum. We aim for our pupils to ‘Persevere, be curious and inspired through their learning’.
