Geography is central to children’s understanding of their locality, and wider localities, their place in the world around them, and how that world works and interacts. It should be fun, relevant by working from starting points that are familiar to children, challenging and engaging - supporting children understands of how localities compare and contrast, develop and change and are influenced from humans and physical features. Children should develop skills in enquiry, investigation and making connections between places, people and things that occur in the natural landscape.
In geography, children are taught skills progression from Foundation Stage to Year 6, building on their ability to apply these skills to a wider range of contexts. Children are taught geographical knowledge sequentially from Foundation Stage to the end of Year 6, building on their understanding of geographical concepts and giving them a context with which to apply skills.
Our geography curriculum is evaluated regularly by our geography lead teacher to ensure the children have the best possible outcomes from this subject.
