Geography

Our geography curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. We focus on progression of knowledge and skills as well as discreet vocabulary progression for each unit of work.

We offer children a high quality geography curriculum, giving them a sense of place – both where they live and in the wider world. They learn about what our local area has to offer and compare and contrast that to places in the rest of the UK, Europe and beyond. We aim to inspire curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our geography curriculum ensures that our children learn about a variety of places, people, resources and natural and human environments. They also develop a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.

Wherever possible, our geography curriculum is enhanced by trips and visitors, as these bring the curriculum alive to our children and create lifelong memorable experiences. We are also committed to outdoor learning opportunities whenever we can. Fieldwork is a vital part of our geography offer, and we place a lot of emphasis on this.

All pupils will be encouraged to ask questions, think critically and develop their own sense of perspective of the world. By deepening our children’s knowledge of geography, we will help them to understand how the world has grown and changed over time, the diversity of people’s lives and the possibility for us to live sustainability for the future.
