Curriculum – Geography

Geography Subject Lead: Mrs Wilkinson

Geography Link Governor: Mrs Hunter

At Stanley Crook Primary School, we believe that geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Our ambitious curriculum encourages children to develop a deep knowledge of the world they live in and understand their place within it, in a local, national and global context.

The geography curriculum is taught around four key areas of learning: geographical skills and field work; human and physical geography; locational knowledge; and place knowledge. These areas are explored through our key concepts: navigation; fieldwork; population; economic activity; tectonic activity; human features; physical features; natural resources; sustainability; and climate and landscape; all of which provide lenses through which to consider different aspects of geography.

We provide an ambitious curriculum for our children and seek to inspire curiosity and instil a fascination about the world and its people, which will remain with our pupils for the rest of their lives. We promote children’s interests and develop both an understanding and a respect for diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, whilst embedding a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.

The geography curriculum supports our pupils to acquire good basic skills; develop their knowledge of diversity and to understand the life-long possibilities the world can offer. As subject knowledge is embedded, pupils develop a confidence in the subject and are motivated to want to learn more about the world around them.

“Geography explains the past, illuminates the present and prepares us for the future.”

Our Curriculum:

We have used a combination of curriculum approaches to develop our Geography curriculum including The National Curriculum and the e-learning resource Oddizzi.

Oddizzi provides children with a range of learning approaches to develop their geographical understanding. There are videos, images, text, guided reading texts and quizzes which show the children the world through the eyes of people who are passionate about the places they are sharing.
