Our Geography curriculum is underpinned, on the whole, by our key words (identity, courage, power, choices and change). Our English texts, that are linked to these words, inspire children’s curiosity and interest to explore the world that we live in and its people, which in turn ignites a love of learning.
We intend to equip children with geographical skills to develop their knowledge through studying places, people and natural and human environments. This seeks to deepen the understanding of the Earth’s human and physical forms and processes.
Geography, by nature, is an investigative subject. Through our teaching, we intend to provoke thought, questions and to encourage children to discover answers to their own questions through exploration and research to enable them to gain a greater understanding and knowledge of the world and their place in it.
It is our aim that our children experience Geography in a variety of contexts. We use a variety of resources within lessons and ensure that children are given the opportunity to complete fieldwork in the school grounds and on off-site visits. This learning is recorded in both the children’s individual topic books and the whole class floor book.
