How is Geography taught at Illogan?

Geography is a valued part of the curriculum, providing a purposeful means for exploring, appreciating and understanding the world in which we live and how it has evolved. At Illogan, children learn about their own local area and compare and contrast that to places in the rest of the UK, Europe and beyond. We aim to inspire curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

All pupils will be encouraged to ask questions, think critically and develop their own sense of perspective of the world. By deepening our children’s knowledge of geography, we will help them to understand how the world has grown and changed over time, the diversity of people’s lives and the possibility for us to live sustainably for the future.
