Geography

Geography Vision Statement

The National Curriculum for Primary Geography states that "a high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives." 

At Pinfold Primary School, we ensure that the teaching of Geography should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.  As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.

 

Aims and Objectives

  • To provide children with a high quality Geography education which inspires their curiosity and fascination with the world.

  • To equip children with contextual knowledge about a range of significant places; including in depth studies of the people as well as the human and physical features and processes of the areas studied.

  • To understand the interaction between physical and human geographical features of the world, including the formation and use of landscapes and environments, including how they have changed over time.

To ensure that children are competent in the geographical skills needed to:

  • collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes.

  • interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS).

  • communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
