Geography:

Through our Geography curriculum, our intent is to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our geography curriculum, is designed to equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes that have shaped our world over time.

Children in Year 5 visit Parliament Hill as part of their unit on Mountains to develop their mapping and map reading skills.

Our Geography curriculum has been tailored to meet the needs of our pupils and reflect the diverse range of backgrounds that make up the school community.  In KS1 and KS2, there are opportunities for children to develop their knowledge of the local area through fieldwork, the study of maps and other multimedia sources.  Across all key stages, links have been made within topics to some of the main cultural groups that make up the school.

Our Cultural Celebration event brought together the range of communities that make up our school and was a fantastic way to discover and enjoy the range of delicious foods we eat!

For example, Year 4 find out about the human and physical geography of Brazil during their unit on the Amazon Rainforest.  As part of the topic, parents of children with Brazilian backgrounds are invited to participate in the learning and talk to the pupils about their own experiences of Brazil.  Making links to the pupils’ cultures and home countries makes the learning more meaningful and deeply embedded.

You can find out the full range of topics covered and the intent, implementation and impact of our Geography curriculum by viewing the Geography SDP below.
