What is the vision of Geography at Lee Chapel?
At Lee Chapel, we aim for a broad and balanced geography curriculum which should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Geography needs to equip pupils with knowledge about places and people; resources in the environment; physical and human processes; formation and use of landscapes. We want children to develop geographical skills using maps, globes, identify countries, continents and oceans; communicating information in a variety of ways.
Ensuring high standards of teaching and learning in geography, our curriculum is progressive throughout the whole school. It should enable all children to gain ‘real-life’ experiences, trying new foods, experiencing music and traditions from different regions, countries and continents.
- Geography should be taught at least once per week
- It is recorded within books a minimum of 2 times per half term, this enables the children to enrich their learning and understanding.
- Whole school Geography Week once per academic year.
The impact and measure of this is to ensure that children at Lee Chapel are equipped with key geographical skills. The children are able to progress with knowledge that will enable them to be ready for the curriculum at Key Stage 3 and for life as an adult in the wider world. We want the children to have thoroughly enjoyed learning about geography, therefore encouraging them to undertake new life experiences now and in the future.
