Geography

 

 

Intent

At Pucklechurch, we believe our Geography curriculum will ignite a curiosity about the world and the people that live in it.  We hope to inspire a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it.  Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills.

We promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. The curriculum is designed develop knowledge and skills that are progressive, as well as transferable, throughout their time at Pucklechurch Primary and also to their further education and beyond.

Implementation

 

We strive to educate our children with an exciting and stimulating curriculum. Their first experiences will be based upon locality directly surrounding them including the school and local environment before moving more widely to other countries and continents. They will learn knowledge through skills such as using atlases, books, compass, websites and other sources of information. We promote cross curricular links wherever possible within our topics.

 

 

By the time the children leave us they will be able to:

·         use resources to locate countries and describe features studied, locate information with speed and accuracy.

·         use a key and compass to build on their knowledge of the UK and the wider world.

·        use fieldwork to observe, measure, record and present the human and physical features in the local area using a range of methods.

 

History and Geography lessons are alternated termly throughout the year. So they will receive 3 terms of History and 3 terms of Geography lessons. Each hub is taught on an A and B cycle, so years 1&2, 3&4 and 5&6 learn about the same topic but the lessons are adapted to suit the learners needs.
