Curriculum Intent- Geography
At Willen Primary School we believe that Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. We encourage the children to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world around them as well as recognise their place within it. Through a broad range of units, we aim to promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
At Willen Primary School, we teach Geography in blocks throughout the year, so that children can gain depth and progression within their learning; for each unit, key knowledge and skills have been identified to ensure progression within each year group within our school. Additionally, cross curricular outcomes in Geography are specifically planned for, with strong links between Geography and English lessons so that a wide range of skills can be reinforced. Within our curriculum, the local area is fully utilised to achieve the desired outcomes, with extensive opportunities for learning outside the classroom embedded in practice.
