Geography Curriculum Intent Statement :

At Christ the King R.C Primary, we aim to deliver a high-quality geography curriculum which will inspire pupils’ curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. As well as learning about the physical and human processes, children should be equipped with knowledge about diverse people, places, environments and resources. A key aim for the subject in the school is to promote the skill of active enquiry and investigation, encouraging the children to question how, why, where and what in terms of geographical processes.
