Geography Curriculum Documents
At The Priory Primary School, we aim to provide our children with a Geography curriculum that piques curiosity and builds knowledge of place, location, interconnectedness, and physical and human geography in a memorable way. We strive to ensure that our Geography curriculum is relevant and authentic, enabling pupils to draw on every day and first-hand experiences as well as broader geographical issues at a local and global scale. Our pupils are given opportunities to develop key geographical skills, such as observing, collecting, measuring, recording, and analysing information. We recognise that our pupils should be able to compare and contrast places, lives, and changes in the geographical world that they live in.
We aim to ensure that our children have good geographical knowledge, remember facts, and can think, speak, and write like a geographer. Furthermore, we endeavour to provide a range of activities, such as fieldwork opportunities, school trips, and internal visitors, to ensure that our pupils develop their open-minded, balanced, and considerate worldviews and ultimately understand the importance of their role in protecting their world and environment.
