Geography

Geography Curriculum Intent

Our Geography provision will aim to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We want to equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. Local geography will also be important so that children can compare and contrast with other locations. Our aim is for our pupils to have a secure understanding of local, national and international geographical issues and be able to discuss this confidently using key vocabulary accurately. Our whole school curriculum vision supports and drives our intent for Geography at Wolverley Sebright Primary Academy.

 

Our intent is to teach content in small, manageable steps to reduce cognitive load. The geography curriculum will ensure that children have the pre-requisite knowledge required in order to access new learning and concepts are revisited to ensure that children build on and retain what they have been taught in previous years. Retrieval practice will be used to support children transferring ideas from their working memory into their long term memory. Children will be given regular opportunities to retrieve through;

 

  • Quizzes
  • Making links across the curriculum
  • Memory games
  • Sharing and imparting their knowledge to others through presentations/assemblies.

 

More detail about how we will achieve our intent is outlined in our Curriculum Statement for Geography below:

Our intent is strongly underpinned by the characteristics that we want our children to display as a Geographer:
