At Archdeacon Cambridge’s CE Primary School, we use the National Curriculum as the starting point for all of our teaching in Geography. The Geography curriculum and skills progression for each year group was developed by the school teaching staff, allowing us to create links between subjects and inspiring our children to learn.
Our main aim in this subject is to create geographers who show a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
We teach a broad and balanced curriculum, enriching lessons with visits to areas of interest as well as in-school workshops from visiting drama companies or public speakers, for example a 'Let's Locate the UK' workshop in Year 2 and the Arctic Explorer map in Year 4 and Year 5. In Geography we regularly use outdoor learning to create realistic opportunities for learning and discovery fieldwork exercises, for example visiting our local parks and rivers, enriching activities in the Wildlife Area and residential trips in Year 5 and Year 6.
Please see the curriculum overviews in the Year Group Pages section of the website to learn more about how Geography fits into the cross curricular learning at our school.
