Through the teaching of Geography we hope to instil a love for enquiry and investigation in our children. We want to motivate our pupils to take an active part in contributing to and protecting this world as they grow up. The Geography curriculum should also create the excitement, creativity and critical thinking about the world that will equip our children to make their own way in it.
How we learn Geography
At Hujjat Primary School, through the Geography curriculum we provoke children’s curiosity and provide opportunities to explore the physical and human aspects of the world. The curriculum is planned and sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught before. It is clear what end points the curriculum is building towards and what pupils need to know and do to reach those endpoints. The curriculum also reflects the school’s local context by addressing typical gaps in pupils’ knowledge and skills.
How we deliver the Curriculum
We follow the Early Years Framework and National Curriculum for Geography and as a school, we have developed our own progression of geographical skills and key vocabulary. From Early Years children explore the environment around them through the use of their outdoor area and the school grounds. As the children move through the school, they begin to look at their local area and compare it to other areas and countries. They also learn to draw and read maps and gather knowledge of the basic geographical vocabulary that refers to human and physical features. They will look at human geography in greater depth - such as settlements and land use. They will also look at physical geography topics such as climate zones, rivers and volcanoes.
