At Diamond Wood Community Academy we believe that a quality Geography curriculum should develop children’s love of curiosity of the world, and discussion. We aim to inspire an appreciation of our world, with particular focus on the community we live in and the rich heritage that creates and shapes our identities. We believe that children need to develop a secure knowledge-base in Geography, which follows a clear pathway of progression as they advance through the primary curriculum.
Through teaching Geography, we want to instill a love of the world around us, which in turn will develop pride and a desire to protect it. We appreciate that Geography has great relevance in teaching for a better understanding of our society and environment. The knowledge, skills and values developed in Geography can be used to improve the world through social and environmental action and through a contribution to action about contemporary community concerns.
