We offer the children a broad and balanced curriculum, which builds on their knowledge, skills and understanding of geography each year.
Through the use of visitors and visits, high quality resources and well planned lessons, children will leave Our Lady & St Patrick's with the knowledge of places and environments throughout the world, and an understanding of how people affect the environment and the world we live in.
Children will also build on a range of investigative and problem solving skills both inside and outside the classroom.
Our children will study our own Local Area of the Lake District and our town of Maryport, to build a picture of their own environment and sense of place, along with a developing knowledge of where this fits in with the bigger UK picture - and indeed with their view of the wider world.
Above, please see our long term plan for Geography, along with an overview of the progression of skills in Geography, at Our Lady & St Patrick's.
