Geography

Geography Vision

By the end of Key Stage 2 pupils will have good knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the earth’s key physical and human processes. They will be able to use key vocab to compare and contrast environmental examples across the breadth of study, explaining any changes and providing reasons for change. This understanding will be based on good geographical evidence and understanding.

Geography Key Concepts

Our Geography curriculum is based around these key concepts that will support children's development in the subject area, aiming towards our vision.

Key ConceptI am a geographer because...
Navigation...I can locate different places in relation to one another, using globes and maps
Diversity...I explore and know about different places, people, resources and environments
Impact...I investigate how humans and physical geography change and impact on one another

Each of these concepts is threaded through the curriculum and repeated through various units. This is because these concepts are vital for children at Henry Chichele Primary School to master in order to achieve our end aspirational goal.
