Geography at Scotts Primary School
Intent: The intent of our Geography curriculum is to deliver a knowledge-rich curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that every child has a sense of place, space and scale of the world around them. As a result of this they will:
- Develop a greater understanding of the world, as well as their place within it.
- Be equipped with the knowledge of diverse places, people and resources.
- Have an increased knowledge of the human and physical features so that they can confidently compare and contrast their own locality with another.
- Develop knowledge and understanding of human and physical processes, and how landscapes and environments change over time.
- Be given a variety of opportunities to develop first-hand knowledge and experiences from fieldwork.
- Be competent at collecting, analysing and communicating a range of data gathered through fieldwork that deepens their understanding of geographical processes.
- Be equipped with the skills to enable them to interpret maps, diagrams, globes and aerial photographs.
- Communicate geographical information which they can present in a variety of ways, through maps, charts and extended pieces of writing.
