“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.”
Vision and INtent
Geography at Cheadle Primary School is committed to providing pupils a foundation to better understand the wider world around them. We aim to provide the knowledge and skills necessary to better understand our rapidly changing world and face the ever growing challenges that we face in our societies both locally and globally.
My name is Stacey Goldstraw-Davis and I am the Geography co-ordinator. I am enjoying supporting the teachers and children with their Geography topics and believe we have an exciting and varied range of activities and themes. We use the local area to bring geography to life and have many trips embedded within the curriculum.
I am a keen gardener myself and love being outdoors. We are lucky at CPS to have such a huge field and lots of garden areas. We have introduced planters onto the playgrounds to help encourage wildlife and to increase our knowledge of plants.
The eco-warriors across the school are keen environmentalists who help to promote care for our local environment and wider world. We are just at the beginning of our Forest School journey but already children have been out enjoying many activities that connect us with nature and our planet. Over the coming year we will be developing the Forest School areas in the school to bring more opportunities for CPS to get out and explore.
Curriculum and implementation
We teach geography using a cross-curricular approach and take the opportunity to consolidate learning and skills within a variety of subject areas. We offer a progressive and dynamic curriculum that responds to the ever-changing world and can be accessed by all children through a differentiated learning approach.
