The Geography Curriculum:

The National Curriculum for geography aims to ensure that all pupils: develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes, understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time, are competent in the geographical skills needed to: collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes, interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS), communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.

Teaching Geography during lockdown:

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
