Stratton Primary School aims to deliver a rich and purposeful Geography curriculum (which follows the 2014 National Curriculum and is in line with the EYFS Framework) which should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Our intention is to develop pupils’ interest in diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. They will develop skills to think like a geographer. In KS1, pupils will develop their knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality. In KS2, they will extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the local area to include the United Kingdom and Europe, North and South America. All children will be taught basic subject-specific vocabulary relating to human and physical geography and begin to use geographical skills, including first-hand observation, to enhance their locational and place awareness and knowledge.
The Stratton Curriculum is underpinned by the 2014 National Curriculum. Teachers’ planning is supported by the geography progression of skills document and curriculum map. Geography is delivered in a way that is sequenced towards cumulative knowledge and skills, building on prior learning. Geography sometimes drives a topic in a classroom, or is taught discretely.
