A Valuable Day Every Day

We are a welcoming and vibrant learning community underpinned by Christian values, in which there is a place for everyone and where our children are inspired to achieve and build a bright future for all.

   We are Geographers!

Here at Otley All Saints, we believe a high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. We ensure our pupils are equipped with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, and have a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.

Aims

We aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes
  • understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time
  • are competent in the geographical skills needed to:
    • collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes
    • interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
    • communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.

Fun with maps! Year 4 locate active and dormant volcanoes across the world, pin-pointing their location using colour coded labels.
