GEOGRAPHY INTENT STATEMENT
Our aim is to ignite pupil’s curiosity and fascination about the world and their immediate environment and develop from that a deepening knowledge about people and places across the world. We want the children to be aware of their sense of place and concepts surrounding geography and how this can affect the world around them. In school, we will, through effective teaching and learning of the knowledge, skills and understanding of geography, help all children develop an understanding of locational knowledge, place knowledge and human and physical geography, and incorporate geographical skills. We provide frequent and repeated opportunities for exploratory and experiential learning and fieldwork as an integral element of purposeful geographical investigations. We will use the Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage and the National Curriculum Geography programmes of study as the basis for our learning and teaching whilst incorporating our knowledge of the children we teach.
