Geography Intent: How we plan for this subject...‘We are at a unique stage in our history; never before have we had the awareness of what we are doing to the planet and never before have we had the power to do something about that’ David AttenboroughGiving children strong foundations in Geography will enable them to understand the importance of caring for all the interconnected aspects of our precious planet. Our World is facing increasing challenges, therefore we have prioritised topics such as pollution and climate change in our Geography curriculum. Pupils are taught how to protect the environment and recognises the importance of this for future generations. At Cranham C of E Primary School we appreciate the unique and exceptional setting that our school is located within. Our Geography curriculum begins with a study of OUR local area and progresses on to explore the wider world, its people, places and the environment. Children need to have knowledge of the world – its cities, countries, continents, seas and oceans – and an understanding of human impact on eco-systems. A range of learning experiences are used to spark pupils’ curiosity and fascination about the world, encouraging them to ask questions. Vocabulary is a heavy focus. Our geography curriculum has been developed to work alongside our history curriculum, to ensure children have a good understanding of how changes have occurred over time. Topics taught have been specifically selected to ensure all pupils make progress and embed knowledge throughout the years, building upon the knowledge acquired in the Early years.
