Primary School Federation

Geography

Our Aims

Our aim for geography within our federation is for pupils to increase their knowledge and curiosity of the wider world and promote high aspirations.

We seek to create a life-long love of the subject, through teaching our children about diverse places, people and resources. Through the study of natural and human environments, as well as physical and
human processes. Our desire is to provide our children with a sense of awe and wonder about the world they live in.

Geography is taught as part of our two-year cycle for each age phase. We alternate our geography and history topics ensuring that our children receive a well rounded teaching of the humanities subjects throughout the year.

 

 

 

 

The impact of our geography curriculum is measured in a variety of ways: questioning during lesson time, marking children’s written work, listening to child-led discussion, interviewing pupils across the school about their learning, book looks and using images/videos of children’s practical learning.
