Geography

The manner in which our curriculum is organised enables all children, including those with additional needs and EHCPs, to fully participate in learning activities. Our Achieve curriculum ensures:

All children are provided with the very best learning experience.

Classrooms are stimulating and a safe space where children develop their love for learning.

Happiness of all is paramount.

Individual needs are recognised and met; an inclusive curriculum for all.

Every child is engaged, motivated, challenged and inspired across all curriculum areas.

Voices of the children are heard and listened to, ensuring that they are at the heart of everything we do and every decision we make.

Each and every child makes the best possible progress, leading to lifelong academic and personal achievement.

We have developed an active approach to learning and teaching which enables us to respond to the needs of our children as they move from Nursery to Reception and then on to Year 1 and 2. 

Our geography curriculum links to the Early Years Foundation Stage within Understanding the World (UTW) and the National Curriculum Geography objectives. It inspires in pupils a curiosity, fascination and understanding about the world around them and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching equips our pupils 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.

 

As with all learning in our school, the teaching of geography starts with the children and expands outwards to world around them.

 

It gives children the geographical skills and knowledge needed to explore the world. It inspires the children’s curiosity to encourage them to ask, and find answers to, their questions.

The teaching of geography in our school enables the learning about the geographical human and physical factors around them, extending out to the whole world. Children make connections and build on their own knowledge. Children explore different environments on trips and encouraged to use all available resources to research information.
