Intent

At Kingsfield, we aim to develop a genuine interest in geography and a real sense of curiosity about the world and the people who live in it.

We strive to provide children with a broad and balanced geography curriculum which develops their understanding of locational knowledge, place knowledge and human and physical geography. This is accompanied by the development and application of key skills, supported by fieldwork.

Implementation

Our geography curriculum is centred round the development of an understanding of the rich geographical area in which we live, including the school grounds themselves. The children will learn about their immediate local area, the wider local community and where our community fits into Great Britain and the world beyond. The curriculum is designed to develop the key knowledge and skills to find out about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with an understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.

Enrichment

Fieldwork, trips and visits are a key part of our geography curriculum. The local area is fully utilised within the curriculum and extensive opportunities for learning outside the classroom are embedded within the units of work.

Links between subjects are carefully planned and children are encouraged to contribute to the life of the school and the community and to use real contexts to develop their skills and knowledge in Geography.

Outcomes

Our curriculum will inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives, equipping them well for further education and beyond.  As children progress throughout the school, they develop a deep knowledge, understanding and appreciation of their local area and its place within the wider geographical context.
