Geography Subject Definitions



At MFSA we teach Geography using a thematic curriculum where it is relevant and appropriate. We value Geography because it allows all children the opportunity to explore the relationship and interaction between the Earth and its people, through the study of place, space, and the environment.

Geography is focus for understanding the physical world, resolving issues about the environment and recognising the importance of sustainable development for the future of mankind.

Through direct experience, practical activities and the use of secondary sources children develop skills of enquiry, research, investigation and problem solving, and an understanding of drawing and the interpretation of maps.
