Geography 2

Intent 

At Preshute Primary School, our curriculum vision  is to cultivate a deep curiosity, understanding  and knowledge of the world in which the pupils live. Through a well-structured curriculum, we aim to inspire a lifelong love for Geography. Our intent is to ensure that all pupils develop a secure foundation of geographical knowledge and skills, enabling them to make sense of the world around them and become responsible global citizens.

Our aim is to provide pupils with understanding of local, British and world wide Geography. Wherever possible, learning will be experiential, engaging pupil's curiosity and enthusiasm and  cross-curricular links are made to connect Geography with other subjects, fostering a holistic understanding of the world. 

The Geography curriculum at Preshute Primary School is carefully sequenced and progressive, building on prior knowledge and skills to deepen pupils' understanding over time. It is broad and balanced, covering key geographical concepts, skills, and themes such as locational knowledge, physical and human geography, environmental sustainability, and geographical skills. The curriculum incorporates a variety of teaching strategies including fieldwork, map reading and the use of technology to engage and immerse pupils in geographical learning.
