Geography Statement of Intent

 

 

The Northway Curriculum seeks to inspire and motivate a generation of Geographers. We will introduce our pupils to different aspects of the world and help to better understand its people, places and environments, and the interactions between them. Geography at Northway is a progression subject which seeks to help pupils understand the human and physical geography of their local area, the United Kingdom, Europe and the Wider World.

 

'The Northway Curriculum- Geography' has been specifically designed for our pupils to enable them to experience the most powerful aspects of a primary geography curriculum. We have carefully mapped out our curriculum to ensure the building blocks of knowledge are built upon as a child progresses through their Northway journey. 

We want our pupils to gain confidence and experiences of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills through specifically planned learning opportunities and fieldwork. This will enable pupils to have transferable skills across other subject disciplines, without impacting on the collection of specific geographical knowledge and skills. Our content will always drive each activity, ensuring that pupils retain knowledge that will readily prepare them for secondary school.

 

 

 

Aims

 

The national curriculum for geography aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes
  • understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time
  • are competent in the geographical skills needed to:
  • collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes
  • interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
  • communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.

 

 

 

 

Impact

 

We measure the impact of our programme of study using Balance. Our formative assessment tool is used to record pupils’ understanding of an objective and helps to plan for opportunities to learn more and remember more. Each Geography unit will include a pre-assessment which reviews objectives from previous learning. This is to ensure a clear progression in knowledge, skills and understanding. Each unit will include opportunities for: creating fieldwork; using maps and GIS software; completing extended writing tasks; data interpretation and management. This will ensure pupils have the opportunity to showcase their cross-curricular skills, whilst ensuring they are developing knowledge of the Geography curriculum.
