Geography Information

In line with the 2014 Primary Curriculum, we have developed a new scheme of work which aims to ‘inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and it’s people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives’. This curriculum has been developed with the Kingsley children at the heart of it! A significant proportion of the curriculum will be linked to topics with the aim of capturing the imagination of children and intensifying their thirst for knowledge.

  
Additionally, key location and place knowledge and understanding will be frequently developed throughout the year. Wherever possible this will be linked to the topics above. However, to prevent confining children’s knowledge to these areas, a wide range of places from around the world will be studied in skills lessons. 

We have also invested in exciting new resources to aid the children in their geographical learning journey! These include:
·         3 sets of the latest editions of Oxford Atlases:
-      Oxford Very First Atlases
-      Oxford First Atlases
-      Oxford Primary Atlases

·         Discovery globes and inflatable globes
·         Political globes


·         All classrooms have a wall map:
-      Illustrated World maps
-      United Kingdom maps
 
Another fundamental aspect of the curriculum is fieldwork skills. Opportunities for the children to develop these skills are embedded throughout the subject. They will learn mapping skills and use directional language and apply these skills when participating in fieldwork trips/activities. To help to develop these mapping skills we have a subscription to Digimaps for Schools. This is an online resource which enables children to explore Ordnance Survey maps at different scales.
