Geography

INTENT

Our geography curriculum intends to: -

  • Stimulate curiosity and fascination about the world by learning about varied places, people, resources, natural and human environments.
  • Ensure that pupils understand how human culture interacts with the natural environment and the way that locations and places can have an impact on people.
  • Ensure that pupils are aware of where things are found, why they are there, and how they develop and change over time.
  • Develop knowledge of globally significant places, interpret a range of geographical information and develop field skills. 

All children will be taught the skills and knowledge of Geography as outlined in the programmes of study in the National Curriculum for Geography.

Geography is the study of places, skills and themes. We teach geography to develop a sense of place and to encourage an understanding of the world today. Geography is concerned with the study of places, the human and physical processes which shape them and the people who live in them.

In Key Stage 1, children will develop their knowledge of the world, the United Kingdom and their locality. They will gain locational knowledge, place knowledge and study Human and Physical Geography, whilst developing Geographical skills and fieldwork.

In Key Stage 2, this will extend to knowledge beyond the local area, to Europe, North and South America. They will deepen and extend their knowledge through, for example, understanding key aspects of climate zones, biomes and vegitation belts and examining economic activity.
