At Park Spring Primary, we understand that Geography plays a crucial role in understanding our world; our curriculum is designed to ignite children’s curiosity and interest in the world and its people. We aim to develop our children’s understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. They will investigate a range of places – both in the United Kingdom and abroad. They will develop their knowledge and understanding of the Earth’s physical and human features. Through their work in Geography, children learn about their local area, and are able to compare their life in this area with that in other regions in the United Kingdom and in the rest of the world.
Teachers plan engaging lessons to challenge and inspire, using the resources provided by the Geography lead. These highlight key vocabulary, previous learning and key subject knowledge. Geography is taught through dedicated lessons – and as a cross-curricular approach where appropriate – to ensure children practise and develop the following:
“Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments.” (THE NATIONAL CURRICULUM)GEOGRAPHY Units of Work Final
At the start of each topic, children complete a pre-unit assessment activity to assess their knowledge. Children then show their learning from the unit in a post assessment task. Knowledge organisers are provided for each unit to highlight key vocabulary and knowledge for children to refer to throughout their learning journey.
