" The study of geography is about more than just memorising places on a map. It's 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." Barack Obama

Barack Obama is an American politician and served as the 44th President of the United States of America from 2009 to 2017. He was the first African-American president in US history.

Geography at St Thomas'

At St Thomas’ we believe that Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world.  Children are encouraged and enabled to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, its inter-connectedness and their place in it. Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills.

Our curriculum is firmly rooted in teaching our children about the coastal community they live in and the Geography that has influenced it. The curriculum is designed to ensure that teaching equips children with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. Our Curriculum is based on the Curriculum Maestro Schemes of Work (Cornerstones) and has been developed and refined to ensure that it meets the needs of our coastal school and our pupils. 

As children progress through the school, their growing knowledge about the world helps them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge and skills are progressive and are sequenced to provide the framework and approaches that provide explanation of how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, inter-connected and change over time.

We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives, equipping them well for further education and beyond.
