Geography

“What is our knowledge worth if we know nothing about the world that sustains us, nothing about natural systems and climate, nothing about other countries and cultures?”

Jonathon Porritt, Forum for the Future.

 

‘A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.’

National Curriculum 2013

 

At Telferscot we teach Geography in 3,  two week blocks across the year. We dive deep into a geographical concept, allowing the children to be fully immersed in their learning and encouraging them to question and explore a topic in detail. Whenever possible, links are made in other topics to matters of geography, especially locating places in the world and our Eco School work. We use the natural and human resources around us to explore the local area and build on experiences and places the children have first hand knowledge of, as well exposing them to areas of the world that are new to them. Using technology, educational visits and field trips to enhance these experiences, children leave Telferscot in Year Six with a deeper understanding of the world, its people and places.
