At Royston St John Baptist CE Primary, we love Geography, and we believe that it helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world we live in. Geography is not just about looking at maps or atlases but investigating the human and physical features of the world, developing place and locational knowledge, and developing children’s fieldwork skills. All of which will equip them for further education and beyond. By exploring the world’s people, places, and environments, we tackle any misconceptions about the world. These geographical skills are transferable to other curriculum areas, promoting their spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development.


‘The study of geography is about more than just memorizing 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.’
