”In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1

Our Intent:

At St. Joseph’s, we have designed a bespoke curriculum to cater for the needs of all of our children. Our Geography curriculum builds on children’s previous knowledge and moves from our home/school to the whole world. From Nursery through to Year 6, our children make links to our local area and every year group explores Geography through fieldwork.
