"In faith and love, we learn and grow."
Our intent for Geography comes from the National Curriculum purpose and aims. Our Geography curriculum will ensure that all pupils:
- communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
Reception - Where we live
Geography planning for KS1 and KS2 is based-upon by the Rising Stars Geography scheme of work chosen because it ensures complete coverage of the key stage 1 and 2 Geography curriculum with knowledge-rich, high-quality digital resources.
Geography is delivered in Reception through the ‘Understanding of the World’ element of the Early Years goals**
