Our Aims and Objectives
To provide a rich, high-quality Geography curriculum which equips all pupils with the experience, knowledge and skills they need to gain a secure, coherent understanding of local, British and world geography. As a staff, we have worked together across the Key Stages to ensure our Geography curriculum has been carefully planned and sequenced to enable this to be delivered We aim to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
Our Curriclum Planning
At Witton Church Walk Primary School, we deliver our Geography curriculum through our progression document. This document maps out the key knowledge, skills and vocabulary the children will be working towards achieving by the end of each key stage. Each National Curriculum objective is broken down into small, achievable steps in order to create a sequence of lessons, allowing for depth of learning to take place. Staff have collaborated on this document to ensure that learning is progressive and built upon prior learning as the children move through the key stages. This ensures our curriculum delivers clear progression of skills from Year 1 to Year 6. Our curriculum reflects our locality and is tailored towards the needs and experiences of our pupils. This ensures our carefully planned sequence of lessons promote curiosity, engagement and a love of learning.
