At Oughterside, we believe through the teaching of Geography we can engage children in the world around them – both locally and globally to allow the pupils to understand the diversity of the world around them.
Through this subject, we aim to promote an investigatory environment in which children are open to asking and answer questions about the natural and human worlds, therefore encouraging them to develop a greater understanding of their world and their place in it. Transferable skills like investigating and problem-solving are nurtured too within our teaching of Geography. These support children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Through Geography, we develop an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills which seek to inspire children’s curiosity and fascination about the world and it’s people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives; to promote children’s interest and understanding about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
Through the implementation of the Curriculum with Unity School Partnership we aim to:
Within geography, we aim to provide investigative learning opportunities to help children gain a coherent knowledge of understanding of each unit of work covered throughout the school. This knowledge is assessed through quizzes and end of topic tasks. In addition, the school tracks key skills such as mapping which are recorded within Scholar Pack
