Our Geography Vision:
‘Geography is a living, breathing subject, constantly adapting itself to change. It is dynamic and relevant… Geography is a great adventure with a purpose’ - Michael Palin
Geography is more than being able to name and locate countries on a map. We aim to inspire children to explore their curiosity around Geography through a wide range of experiences looking at both human and physical Geography. Children should be leaders of their own learning; asking questions and being fascinated about the wonders of the world we live in.
We aim, not only to inspire, fascinate and broaden children’s knowledge but encourage them to give their learning a meaningful link to the current world, climate and their own life experiences giving them a well-rounded approach to the subject.
Geography is taught from EYFS to Year 6 and requires a specific teaching approach. Our teachers use a range of teaching and learning styles to create Geography lessons that are both engaging and informative. Practical based learning is woven throughout the Geography curriculum which gives children a chance to see what they have learnt in action. We aim to give all children a good understanding of what Geography is as well as develop their skills and understanding around the subject.
The four areas that underpin our Geography teaching are:
Pupils will develop a deep understanding of what they have been taught, integrating this learning into their long term memory.
Geography Across the School
Year 4 - Our Wonderful World
Year 4 completed a topic focusing on different parts of the world. They created and labelled globes to show what they had learnt.
Year 5 - Intrepid Explorers
Year 5 have spent time during their Geography unit looking at countries in North and South America as well as thinking about the differences between Human and Physical Geography. Below are some photos of their work.
Year 6 - Rapid Rivers
Year 6 learnt about features of a river during their Geography lessons. They made models of rivers to show what they had learnt.
