    10. 14. <ul><li>The study of geography stimulates an interest in, and a sense of wonder about, places and helps make sense of a complex and dynamically changing world. </li></ul><ul><li>It explains how places and landscapes are formed , how people and environment interact, and how a diverse range of economies and societies are interconnected. It builds on pupils’ own experiences to investigate at all scales from the personal to the global . </li></ul><ul><li>Geographical enquiry encourages questioning , investigation and critical thinking about issues affecting the world and people’s lives, for the present and future. </li></ul><ul><li>Fieldwork is an essential element of this. Pupils learn to think spatially , using maps, visual images and new technologies, including geographical information systems, to obtain, present and analyse information. </li></ul><ul><li>Geography inspires pupils to become global citizens by exploring their own place in the world, their values and responsibilities to other people, to the environment and to the sustainability of the planet. </li></ul>& the “TREES”
