At All Saints Upton we aim to provide Geography lessons that provide the children with curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will inspire them to travel and experience other countries and cultures throughout their lives. Lessons will equip pupils 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. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.
All of our Geography lessons are based on the National Curiculum 2014 objectives and each Year group has Geography based themes based around an enquiry question. Each year group builds upon the previous year group and shows a prgogression in learning objectives and skills. This ensures thorough coverage throughout each Key Stage Phase. We aim for all children to:
- develop contextual knowledge of the location of places, seas and oceans, including their defining physical and human characteristics
- understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world and how these are interdependent and change over time
- We ensure children are competent in the geographical skills needed to:
- collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes
