Geography Curriculum Statement
At Hopton C of E Primary School we strive to provide our children with the opportunities to become global citizens, deepening their interest and wonder in exploring their own place in the world.
Through our curriculum our children will develop a sense of their world at the local, national and global level. They will understand the interconnections between how people and the environment interact. Fieldwork is an essential part of this. We believe it is important to provide ‘Living Geography’ through beach schools and outdoor learning making it relevant to children’s lives, their futures and their world. Pupils will learn to think critically, think spatially, use maps, visual images and technology to analyse and present information.
By the end of Year 6, pupils at Hopton will have a good understanding of their responsibilities within their own society whilst also having a clear insight into the sustainability of an ever changing world.
