Geography is a valued part of the curriculum at St Mary Cray Primary Academy as it provides a means of exploring, appreciating and understanding the world in which we live and how it has evolved. Geography explores the relationship between the Earth and its people. It stimulates curiosity and imagination and at SMCPA we aim to build upon each of our children’s "personal geography" by developing geographical skills, understanding and knowledge through our Core curriculum. We encourage children to learn by experience and we value fieldwork as an integral part of the Geography Curriculum.
We highly value the importance of Geography and how it can help nurture and develop children's understanding of all other subjects in the curriculum. Across the curriculum we try and embrace outdoor learning, and this is practiculary valued in Geography. From investigating the local geographic features, both human and physical, to develping children's core geographical skills, through Forest School and outdoor adventures.
