Primary School


Statement of Intent

The rationale for the Geography Curriculum in our school is to inspire pupil curiosity about their world and to engage them in outdoor learning and geographical enquiry.

By the end of Year 6, we intend our pupils to be secondary ready by providing them with the skills and attitudes to enable them to become competent geographers.

The curriculum has been sequenced to enable pupils to gradually widen their sense of scale from their immediate geography to a global level. This is organised and shared in the long-term overview.

In Key Stage 1 children will begin by looking at the local environment before moving on to study and compare Willington with the wider world.

In Lower Key Stage 2 children explore the United Kingdom with a regional case study of the North East before moving on to study Europe with a focus on the Bay of Naples.

In Upper Key Stage 2 pupils will examine the world on a global scale, including studying how the landscape is shaped by both the environment and by people’s actions. We will include making comparisons with San Paulo in Brazil. In addition we make use of links with Kibosho Primary in Tanzania to enhance geographical learning and understanding.

Throughout Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 map and fieldwork knowledge is developed through a series of field-based enquiries.

The curriculum intent for each sequence of learning is laid out in the medium-term plan for each unit.
