Welcome to Geography at Lightmoor
At Lightmoor Village Primary School, we believe that Geography provides endless opportunities to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world, their own locality and the diversity of its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
“The study of geography is about more than just memorizing 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.” – Barrack Obama
The Geography curriculum at Lightmoor Village Primary School enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can and are used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. The curriculum is designed to develop knowledge and skills that are progressive and built upon throughout the time at Lightmoor Village Primary School and beyond.
