Curriculum - Geography

Intent and Impact:


Our geography curriculum inspires pupils’ curiosity and fascination about people and the world, as well as their responsibilities within it. The pupils are taught knowledge about places and people; resources in the environment; physical and human processes; formation and use of landscapes. We also aim to develop geographical skills: collecting and analysing data; using maps, globes, aerial photographs and digital mapping to name and identify countries, continents and oceans; and communicating information in a variety of ways. There are many opportunities for cross-curricular links to be made, investigations and problem-solving, as well as social, moral and cultural discussions. Learning is enhanced by use of fieldwork and educational visits.


The children’s learning is assessed against criteria that are based on the 2014 National Curriculum statements for Geography. We use summative assessment to determine children’s understanding and inform teachers planning. This is reviewed by SLT and the subject leader, who also carries out learning walks, quizzes, book scrutiny and lesson observations. >
