Geography Intent, Implementation & Impact Statement
St Margaret Clitherow
We believe that our Geography curriculum inspires pupil’s curiosity and encourages them to be caring, responsible citizens of our world. We use a variety of learning experiences in the classroom, through our fieldwork and with educational visits, which allow the children to develop their Geographical knowledge and skills. Children are given opportunities to explore, observe, question and compare how individuals, including themselves, live around the world and the impact of this.
We aim to develop knowledge of:
Children are provided with a multitude of engaging, exciting activities and experiences that follow the objectives set out in the Statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. Geography-based activities are used to develop pupils’ knowledge and understanding of people, culture and communities, as well as the natural world that they are a part of.
All pupils complete ‘Key Assessment Tasks’ every topic. This is usually at the end of a topic, with the aim of demonstrating that teaching has resulted in clear and appropriate outcomes for all. Teachers use these assessments to inform individual pupil progress, and then use this information to plan for gaps in knowledge.
