Our Vision at Castleview

 

At Castleview, we aim for all of our children to be curious throughout their time at our school and beyond. Our geography curriculum encourages our children to be naturally inquisitive in both their immediate surroundings and in places and environments in the wider world. To be well-rounded citizens, we believe children need to understand the differences between places and cultures through purposeful research and careful questioning. As a school, our children have opportunities to build on their prior knowledge and apply their skills through our lessons.

Supporting your child at home

 

As always, we would encourage you to support the children’s learning at home and revisit concepts that they have studied at school in order to aid consolidation. These websites are great tools for you to utilise in order to do this:

Enrichment at Castleview

At Castleview, we aim to enrich our Geography Curriculum to ensure it is accessible to all. Therefore, we organise trips, workshops and fieldwork to offer them first hand experiences to enhance their knowledge and understanding.
