At Kensworth, children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. Our geography curriculum enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas.
The curriculum is designed to ensure that teaching equips 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 through the school, their growing knowledge about the world helps them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.
Our Geography curriculum covers the skills and knowledge outlined in the National Curriculum through broad, challenging and inspiring themes. A theme based approach is used to deliver the content within a meaningful context and wherever possible cross curricular links are exploited.
Children are given a wide variety of experiences both in the classroom and out. We encourage school visits and visitors into school to enable the children to gain first-hand experiences to support their learning.
The use of knowledge organisers aid teachers in planning their knowledge and skills and students in understanding the expectations by the end of the unit.
