We aim to inspire our children to be curious about the world around them and the people that live there. We want to equip children with the knowledge they need to build an understanding and fascination with people, places, environments and how these three interact with and impact each other. We want them to become critical thinkers who will take this learning with them throughout their lives.
Underpinning their learning will be the development of geographical skills including fieldwork, data analysis, the ability to both evaluate and learn from a range of sources as well as being able to communicate their learning in a variety of ways.
We offer a curriculum that is guided by the national curriculum but goes beyond this to reflect current environmental issues, global affairs and to reflect our own local environment.
As children move through the school they will build upon their knowledge of diverse places and peoples from around the globe. They will learn about how landscapes are formed and used and make links between physical and human processes.
The Big Ideas are supported by key questions that are embedded within our curriculum and run throughout the year groups to give a framework for children to hang their knowledge on and to aid retrieval of prior learning.
In EYFS, we implement Geography through exploring the world around us, as well as learning about people in the world, making links with children from other backgrounds and cultures.
Professional judgements for Geography are recorded each term on our assessment system so impact can be measured.
