At Saltaire Primary School, our geography curriculum fulfils the requirements of the National Curriculum; providing a broad, balanced curriculum; ensuring the progressive development of geographical concepts, knowledge and skills; and for our children to develop a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
Geography will be taught through a cross-curricular topic based. This enables teachers to give a meaningful context for the learning. Teachers will also make it explicit to children that they are learning geography skills and that they are being ‘Geographers’. Children are encouraged to immerse themselves in a variety of learning opportunities to secure their knowledge and application of geographical skills. The children are given opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about their local area so that they can develop of real sense of who they are, their heritage and what makes our local area unique and special. School visits and focused activities and fieldwork ensure our children understand through experience and practical application.
