We believe that geography is fundamental in broadening our pupils’ experiences, developing their understanding of the wonders of our world and giving them a broader knowledge to help them achieve in other subjects and throughout their lives. Teaching equips children with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with an understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes
Pupils learn how to draw and interpret maps and develop the skills of research, investigation, analysis and problem solving. Through their growing knowledge and understanding of human geography, children gain an appreciation of life in other countries, continents and cultures. Wherever possible, we involve the pupils in practical activities, for example, researching a local environment, geographical field trips, using simple geographical equipment, and observing and discovering the outdoors, including our own Forest School.
Our curriculum is designed to help pupils build on their geographical skills and knowledge as they move through the school. At the beginning of each unit, children revisit prior learning and discuss what they already know to help provide a context for their upcoming learning. Knowledge organisers are also used to highlight key information and vocabulary, with unit-specific maps, diagrams and pictures to support understanding.
We were proud to be awarded the Silver Award for Primary Geography Quality Mark in 2022.
