The National Curriculum for Geography aims for pupils to:
At Firs Primary, we enhance the geography curriculum by ensuring, that in addition the statutory content, most topics contain an element of learning related to climate and environmental issues. This makes our curriculum relevant to the needs our children today and to help them become responsible citizens of the future, as stated in the My Planet aspect of our school curriculum intent.
The teacher subject co-ordinator is Miss Courtney Hodges.
The teaching assistant co-ordinator is Miss Stacey Harrison.
At Firs, we continued to teach our curriculum with some adaptations during National Lockdown. For pupils at school, the Geography curriculum at school was taught as normal. For pupils at home, adaptations were made where children wouldn’t have the resources at home that would be used in school. These adaptations enabled pupils to achieve same learning objective as those in school, just in a different way. As well as adaptations to the task/resources, pupils’ may have been taught Geography through online zoom lessons, pre-recorded videos by the teacher (such as on loom), or links to online videos (such as National Oak Academy or BBC Bitesize). More information about our teaching and learning during lockdown can be found on our “Whole School Remote Learning Plan” Click here
At Firs, each year group does Geography at different times of the year, in different topics. Click on the photos below to see some of the fantastic work that we have done!
Across our school we like to inspire our pupils to have a curiosity and fascination about the world around them.
One way that this is supported within our school, we have 3 large maps of the United Kingdom, Europe and the world. The children often enjoy showing each other where they are from and we also use these maps in lessons.
