The academy follows the National Curriculum for our Geography Learning teaching. Units of work are specially adapted to suit our children and locality.
Our intent for Geography is that;
develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes
understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time
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
Implementation of Geography
Outlined below is the knowledge, skills and vocabulary progression at Crowle Primary Academy for each strand of Geography.
At Crowle Primary Academy, Geography will be inter-woven into ongoing provision in the EYFS as well as being taught discrete, specific skills and knowledge outline in our progression map. Children start to develop their Geographical Skills through Understanding of the World. This can be seen through the key skills of The World and People and Communities. Through this, children build the foundations of Geographical Knowledge they can take with them through their academic journey.
The progression document for our fieldwork units will follow shortly.
