In Bradley Barton, we plan our Geography lessons in line with our topic themes and use these to address the National Curriculum. The Geography Curriculum aims to inspire pupils curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Lessons will equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people and environment.
Here at Bradley Barton, we plan out topics across a rolling programme lasting 2 years where children will be able to achieve objectives outlined in the curriculum through exciting, engaging areas of learning.
Geography is led by Jimmy Butters.
The Nation Curriculum 2014 states:
" 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 framework and approaches that explain how the Earth's features at different scales are shapes, interconnected and change over time.
Children’s Views of their Learning
Two children from Year 3/4 talked about the learning that might take place in a Geography lesson. They said they might learn about; landmarks, maps, complete art work, learn about roads and find out about traditions in different countries.
In our communal areas Geography is promoted on our Bradley Barton Around the World display board. Children are encouraged to engage with this by finding locations and co-ordinates on a map as well as using globes and atlases.
