'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.'
Roe Farm Primary School is fortunate to be located on the door step to the Peak District, Britain's first National Park. It provides many fantastic opportunities for pupils to study first hand many aspects of both physical and human geography. This first hand experience provides a great foundation for developing an understanding of processes at a global level.
In Geography we aim to:
Develop pupils' understanding of the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world.
Stimulate pupils' enthusiasm for, and curiosity about their surroundings and the wider world.
Increase their knowledge and understanding of the different communities and cultures within Chaddesden, Derby, Britain and the world - and how these relate to each other.
Develop pupils' competence in specific geographical skills.
Encourage pupils to ask questions and communicate geographical information in a variety of ways.
