Thinking geographically offers a uniquely powerful way of seeing the world and makes connections between scales, from the local to the global. We need facts in order to think, but we also need concepts to enable us to group bits of information, or facts, together. Other concepts add depth and support a deeper understanding of people, places and environments. Geography synthesises different ideas and types of knowledge which is why it is both a challenging and exciting subject. At Reculver CEP School we aim to help develop children's curiosity in both their immediate surroundings and in places and environments in the wider world. Through high quality teaching we encourage an interest, fascination and desire to investigate a variety of human and physical characteristics of different places, both local and afar, through purposeful research and careful questioning.
