Knowledge and Understanding

 Our Geography curriculum intent is for our children to be given learning opportunities which inspire curiosity and fascination in pupils to explore and understand the world in which we live.

 We are committed to providing children with opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about our local area, as well as places within the UK, Europe and the continents in the world. We want children to enjoy and love learning about geography both in and out of the classroom through the use of fieldwork and educational visits.

 We give breadth by delivering the  the knowledge, understanding and skills from the four Geography strands in the National Curriculum; 

1. Locational knowledge

2. Place knowledge

3. Human and Physical Geography and 

4. Skills and Fieldwork

Through our long term plan there are topics which use Geography as the driver and there are other topics where geographical knowledge and skills are linked to provide connection through subjects. 

The Long term plans clearly show our topics and our Medium term plans show the National Curriculum content, knowledge and key skills.
