At St Anne's we intend to provide a curriculum which inspires pupils to be curious and fascinated about the world. Children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding of the world, as well as their place in it. The curriculum is designed so that progressively, each year, children will build on their knowledge of different places, people, resources and environments. Children will develop their knowledge of the location of significant places, including within their local area. Children will have a deep understanding of the Earth's key physical and human features. Children will learn to collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through fieldwork experiences and geographical sources, including maps, diagrams, globes, atlases, aerial photographs and digital/computer mapping.
As part of the planning process, teachers plan the following:
We maintain strong links to the National Curriculum guidelines to ensure all aspects, knowledge and skills are being taught.
We use progression grids to ensure there is clear skills, concepts and knowledge progression throughout school.
Through high quality teaching of Geography we will see the impact of the subject in different ways.
If children are keeping up with the curriculum, they are deemed to be making good or better progress. In addition, we measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods:
