Geography

Intent:

Our Geography curriculum is designed to inspire children’s curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We aim to equip children with the knowledge and skills needed to think critically about the world and their place in it. We aim to promote children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. 

Implementation:

Geography is taught in accordance with the National Curriculum.

We implement a progressive geography curriculum that builds on prior knowledge and skills year on year. Children will revisit geographical skills and knowledge in order to embed and deepen understanding. The geography curriculum is aimed to be challenging, creative and encourage active learning. Following our schools ethos of a story based curriculum children’s learning is often inspired by, or linked to a text. We provide a variety of hands-on opportunities for geography learning inside and outside the classroom. This allows children to enrich their knowledge by carrying out meaningful fieldwork within their local area and community. We ensure that trips and visiting experts enhance the learning experiences for the children. 

Impact:

Throughout their geography learning children build on their previous knowledge to progressively build on a deeper understanding to ensure they are suitably prepared for education within secondary school. Our children demonstrate an appreciation and understanding of their local area, places near and far and the processes that create and affect them. Geography offers our children to understand the potential of their role and the impact that they might have on the world.
