At Holy Rood School, we aim to foster within our pupils an inquisitive interest in the world around them. As a Catholic school, we believe that teaching our pupils about the world that God has created for us is a crucial part of the education we offer. Our programme of study aims to form young people who are knowledgeable and conscious of the interconnected nature of life on Earth.
The aims of our school’s geography curriculum of study are:
- To enable children to gain knowledge and understanding of places in the world
- To develop a ‘sense of place’ within the local and worldwide community
- To stimulate pupil curiosity, interest and enjoyment in Geography;
- To increase children’s knowledge of other countries and cultures
- To allow children to learn graphic skills, including how to use, draw and interpret maps
- To enable children to know and understand environmental problems at a local, regional and global level

As part of our curriculum in Year 6, the pupils study a unit called 'Our Changing World'. In that unit they learn all about coastal erosion in Happisburgh, North Norfolk.
After studying this topic the pupils wrote, filmed and edited their own TV shows and news programmes about this geographical process and the impact it has on a local community. Please take a watch!
