Geography

We will deliver a curriculum that: 

  • Inspires a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people  

  • Equips children with an understanding of diverse places, people, resources and environments around them 

  • Allows children to build on prior learning about physical and human processes and the formation and use of landscapes and environments 

  • Develops an understanding that the Earth’s features are interconnected and change over time 

  • Encourages exploration of their own environment and challenges pupils to make connections between their local surroundings and that of contrasting settlements   

  • Use local area and community to develop geographical skills and knowledge  

 

Implementation 

 

The Geography programme of study provided by the National Curriculum has been broken down to ensure both progression and coverage across Key Stage 1 and 2. 

The teaching, learning and sequencing of the curriculum follows:  

  • Each theme will be taught explicitly through exciting topics, including links to other areas of the curriculum  

  • Fieldwork allowing pupils to explore their local area 

  • A teaching sequence that begins with a ‘hook’, builds knowledge and skills and concludes with a reflection including trips and showcases to an audience 

  • Continuous CPD for teachers to ensure their skills and knowledge is developed to teach the skills confidently and accurately  

 

Impact 

 

  • Opportunities for children to explore the outdoor learning environments, both within the school grounds and local community  

  • Continued training and support for teachers ensuring they are the experts in the subjects that they teach  

  • There will be a clear progression of skills across Key Stage 1 and 2 that builds on prior knowledge

  • Our children will be confident geographers and be able to clearly discuss their learning from past and current topics, as well as explain their next steps
