At Oxbridge Lane we desire to nurture and encourage natural curiosity. We strive to turn the children into inquisitive, questioning learners who look closely at and think carefully about where they live. Learning Geography requires children to look at the world through a ‘geographical lense’ whereby they engage with questions about people, society, the environment and the planet. Children learn to synthesise information from multiple sources and use their geographical skills to enquire about and interpret what they find out, creating a holistic understanding of the world around them. Children should have a natural curiosity about the world, and we support this curiosity by helping them carry out and plan investigations via fieldwork.
We support our children in developing a respect and love for the physical environment, the diverse people and the natural landscape which surrounds Stockton. We want our children to understand Teesside and how they can be part of protecting, preserving and developing their local area for future generations to appreciate. As a school, we study countries around the world and learn about the similarities and differences between our local area, other areas within the UK and a variety of places from around the world. As our children develop their understanding of Geography, they come to understand the link between physical and human processes and how a variety of landscapes were formed and are used.
