Geography and History

Thank you to the amazing positive news from around the world from The Happy Broadcast


At St Gerard’s we aim to provide Geography lessons that provide the children with curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Lessons will equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.
