The aim of the Geography curriculum at Irlam and Cadishead Academy is to inspire awe and wonder about the Earth, its landscapes and the people that live in it. Geography allows young people to understand the processes that have shaped our world and how people interact within it.
Through our sequenced curriculum students at ICA will develop their geographical skills, including locational skills, analysis and problem solving. We aim for them to ‘think like geographers’ which means they should be able to identify connections between different aspects of the subject to develop a sense of place, economic activities or natural earth processes and to recognise that different people use and perceive their worlds differently.
