At Morton Trentside primary School our aim is for every child to be interested and inquisitive in the world that we live in. Through teaching, this should provide pupils with the confidence to ask questions about our world; a passion to investigate new ideas; and a drive to interpret their findings, developing their understanding about both far-off places and those closer to home. Furthermore, we intend to extend children’s knowledge through both independent study, high quality geographical teaching, and by giving all children the opportunity to develop their geographical skills to help them achieve this. Our aim is for children to understand the connections between humans and the physical geography of the planet on which we live and how one can affect the other. They will have the opportunities to understand how their town, and the world around it, has changed over time and how technology and mankind has shaped this world to what it is today. We want our children to investigate the structure of our Earth and be able to understand the different cultures which inhabit the world round them. We want to provide opportunities for the children to be advocates of positive change in the world in which we live; the generation who makes a difference.
