We want our children to develop curiosity and a desire to investigate their world and learn the skills to continue to be outside of school and into adulthood. We endeavour to provide a stimulating, engaging and challenging curriculum and learning environment as well as encouraging our children to follow and investigate their own interests. We want our children to develop a sound geographical knowledge starting with the United Kingdom and branching out to the world; the continents, countries, main physical features and human landmarks. Our curriculum intends to develop geographical skills; map reading, using ordnance survey maps, using atlases and understanding geographical data and terminology.
We have designed our curriculum to fully cover the national curriculum and its expectations with discrete geography units. We ensure our children develop ‘sticky knowledge’ by making links to previous learning and building on existing skills. We develop geographical skills through practical and digital map making and field work and to make pupils environmentally and geographically aware at a local, regional and global level. This builds to increase our pupils’ awareness and knowledge of other cultures.
Our curriculum is designed to ‘wow’ and engage our pupils and to include all children whatever their needs. Access to online resource, special visitors and educational visits, ‘bring the learning to life’ for our children and enhance the learning experience.
