Geography

Sub-intent for Geography

 

"To inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.'

DfE (2013)

and

 

“The primary curriculum recognises that children themselves must be actively engaged in making sense of the world; they need to be able to connect new knowledge to what they already know and construct their own meanings.” - Susan Pike.

 

Implementation specific guidance for Geogrpahy - 

Geography is an enquiry led subject which is taught as part of our exciting Learning Adventures. Children are encouraged to explore and discuss, ask and seek to answer questions such

  • Where is this place?
  • What is it like? (And why?)
  • How and why is it changing?
  • How does this place compare with other places?
  • How and why are places connected?
  • What could/should the world be like in the future?
  • What can we do to influence change?

 

and after staff CPD the following was also agreed: 

  1. All geography learning will include opportunities for children to compare their experiences and location with other children in different locations
  2. Questions need to drive learning in geography – they need to be exploring questions created ideally by the children due to a fascinating hook (launch of the learning adventure)

 

 

 

Below are three documents that detail the curriculum for Geography across the school:

 

  • The first document is the Geography learning in EYFS - under construction!

 

  • The second document is the full Geography curriculum set out in year groups. 

 

  • The third document are key objectives which the Subject Lead Guide has identified that they feel in their professional opinion the children must understand to develop a good understanding of their subject.

(N.B. The order of the key objectives are in constant review to ensure secure and relevant learning links and ensure progressive understanding)
