At Burradon, our geography teaching aims to deliver a high-quality education where children are inspired, curious and enthused to find out about the physical and human world.
Our curriculum incorporates all of our school values:
Be curious about the world around you, ask questions and investigate.
Care and respect yourself, other people, our school and the wider world
At the heart of the community
Our geography teaching intent is;
To ensure high standards of teaching and learning in geography we implement a curriculum that is progressive throughout the whole school, from EYFS to Year 6. Geography is taught on a half termly basis focusing on the knowledge and skills from the National Curriculum.
We encourage the children to be curious geographers within their learning. At the beginning of every new topic children ask questions which they would like answered, these then drive the direction of the class teacher’s planning or the child’s independent research.
Our children are given the opportunity to be active in their learning as much as possible. This may include using our woodland area or walking around the local village to more in depth studies away from the local area. We aim to provide our children with a range of geographical experiences which is enhanced by the opportunity of a week-long residential to High Borrans in the Lake District.
