    The Geography curriculum at Trinity shares the vision of the National curriculum . The geography department aims is to produce “A high-quality geography education that inspires in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our teaching equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world will help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the framework and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.”

     · The aim of our curriculum is too, develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes

    · Understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time

    · Pupils are competent in the geographical skills needed to:

    · Pupils collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes

    · Pupils interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

    · Pupils communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length
