At Worksop Priory Academy, we intend to deliver a Geography curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the development of every child’s ability and academic achievement. As set out in the National Curriculum, we intend to implement a geography programme of study with appropriate subject knowledge, that inspires a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people.
By accessing high-quality geography lessons, pupils are equipped 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. Through the curriculum, children also study the concept of sustainability, to help explore the impact of humans from their use of natural resources.
Children are provided with opportunities to collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork.
Children learn and progressively build upon the skills of interpreting geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs. Children are provided with opportunities to explore cross-curricular topics in greater depth by utilising their geography skills, for example, looking at world religions, learning about music from different regions and exploring geographical locations in their history topics.
We celebrate success and achievement in geography by providing children with opportunities to share their learning. For example, children share them with their peers in class, through school displays and as part of homework projects.
We enhance the children’s experience of geography further, by offering whole school enrichment days, school trips focussed on topics and geographical homework projects.
Dream by: exploring our individual creativity.
Build by: developing our procedural knowledge and vocabulary.
Grow by: sharing and celebrating our successes in geography with others.
