Geography

Our geography curriculum inspires our pupils with

a curiosity and fascination about the world and its

people.

It starts in our EYFS by developing children's

knowledge of the world immediately around them.

In Key Stage 1 and 2 we then develop their

understanding of the United Kingdom before

exploring countries and concepts beyond their

experience. Physical geography tends to take place

in the summer term when the weather is better

and we can take advantage of the outdoors.

 

By the end of Key Stage 2, we seek to deepen

our children's understanding of the interaction

between physical and human processes, and of the

formation and use of landscapes and environments, how they interconnect and change over time. Studies also become more comparative.

We value fieldwork and first-hand experiences. Using our minibus we have access to our wonderful locality. We can study rivers from source to mouth, mountains and coastlines by walking on them. We also meet with the people who manage our environment (such as the National Trust Rangers) and learn about the importance of their work.

 

Throughout our work, we always make connections with our school vision, 'Created to do Good' Ephesians 2:10.
