Geography

It is our ambition, that our Geography curriculum inspires a positive and proactive approach towards securing the future of our planet, in a world where human impact is increasingly influencing its future. We also want to enthuse our children about the subject, so that they also have a desire to continue to learn about our planets endless geographical wonders.

Our Geography curriculum begins with the children’s experiences, using the local environment to support their learning through regular Welly Walks. This enables them to bring their learning to life through the exploration of their natural environment.

As children move further into Key Stage Two, our curriculum builds progressively, so that children have a secure understanding of the wonders of our planet. Our curriculum, encourages a fascination and inquisitive nature which very much promotes a caring attitude towards our environment.

Implementation

Alongside colleagues in our MAT, we have worked collaboratively to create topics that meet the ambitions of the National Curriculum. Our Geography curriculum builds on the children’s previous learning, developing their knowledge and skills as they develop their understanding through the different topics. Through our carefully mapped curriculum, our children develop their skills of geographical enquiry and enhance their understanding of human and physical geography.

The topics taught are:

Year 1 and 2 – Local Geography and Britain

Year 3 – Life on the Edge – Extremes

Year 4 – Mother Earth

Year 5 – Life on the Edge – The Reef
Geography LIVE! (Field study)

Year 6 – Vietnam

Impact

Through our curriculum, our pupils have a deeper understanding of physical and human processes. More importantly through our Eco Curriculum and Welly Walk curriculum, our children have a greater understanding of the importance of protecting our planet for their generation. Through engaging lessons, we are providing our children with the knowledge and skills that will inspire them to make a difference and lead future change.
