At Leedstown, our geography curriculum is designed to develop pupils’ curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them throughout their lives.
Learners will investigate a range of places, both in Britain and abroad to help develop knowledge and understanding of the Earth’s physical and human processes. We provide opportunities to investigate and enquire about our local area, this will support children to develop an understanding of who they are, their heritage and what makes our local area so unique and special.
We want the children to have a love of geographical learning, gaining knowledge and skills through high quality teaching both inside and outside the classroom. As the future generation responsible for our planet, we want our children to have a sense of respect for the world around them in line with our Leedstown School mission statement: Caring, Sharing, Giving.
The impact of our geography curriculum is that our learners are equipped with the geographical skills and knowledge that will enable them to be ready for the secondary curriculum and for life as an adult in the wider world. The children will be able to discuss their learning and demonstrate their knowledge and understanding through a range of activities.
The children’s learning is assessed against the age-related expectation bands that are based on the 2014 National Curriculum statements for Geography.
