Our geography curriculum develops children's contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes. It ensures that the children understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, that they will be able to define and understand the interdependence of physical and human characteristics within relevant contexts.
Through topic work, the children will extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the local area to include the United Kingdom and Europe, North and South America.
This will include the location and characteristics of a range of the world’s most significant human and physical features.
The children will collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes, interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS), communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
Throughout the school, the curriculum will be enriched through trips, handling artefacts and exposure to other geographical resources.
