We have ensured that our geography curriculum is broad, and relevant and enriched by connecting key topics and objectives to the big question in our sticky curriculum; linking Geography to children’s own lives within lessons.
The Geography curriculum strengthens and develops character by allowing children to become curious about the world around them. By developing a sound understanding of the world, we will allow children to develop both compassion and respect for our planet. The Geography curriculum allows positive contribution by allowing children to engage in the local areas. The Geography curriculum allows children to be knowledgeable, skilled and ready by actively engaging in activities.
We will equip our children with a wide skill set including map reading and compass skills and use these skills practically during trips, local walks around our neighbourhood and within the classroom.
This is taught through our Sticky Curriculum. It is taught explicitly in a weekly timetabled for 1 and a half sessions each week, over a 6-week period led by teachers. Children demonstrate their understanding through floor books (Year 1) and journaling in (Years 2 – 6). Throughout the topic the children record and add their learning to the Seesaw journal.
