What a St Swithin’s geographer looks like.
These ideas have been developed and agreed with the children in our school. These are the behaviours and characteristics we believe a St Swithin’s geographer looks like. We are geographers!
Every child should: -
- Be curious about the world and the people who live there.
- Have knowledge of a variety of places around the world (local to global) and how they function.
- Understand how places are connected.
- Develop their geographical vocabulary, using it frequently and with confidence.
- Develop their mapping skills, using maps, atlases and globes as well as digital and computer mapping sources to locate and describe features. Utilising these skills to begin producing their own maps and plans ensuring the presentation is of a high standard.
- Complete fieldwork and develop their enquiry skills including observing, measuring and recording as well as conducting research in a variety of ways.
