We will implement these actions by...
At Lindfield Primary Academy, our Geography curriculum is underpinned by a broad range of stimulating topics designed to bring learning to life with the use of key texts, studies of our locality, mapping, school trips, studies of natural phenomena and different regions of the world and so on. Building on strong links with the National Curriculum, we foster an enquiry-based approach to children’s learning about understanding the physical and human aspects of our world.
Our medium term plans set out our termly topics developing geographical themes, making links with other curriculum subjects such as History, RE, Art, Science and English, where possible. These are identified on year group learning journeys and medium term plans. Geographical units taught across the academy are mapped out on our long term planning, with a planned progression of skills that ensures children consistently develop skills and knowledge, building on previous years and ensuring challenge for all.
Children’s work is showcased through high quality displays and assemblies, whilst ‘Learning through Stories’ weeks centred on a key text highlight learning across the curriculum. They provide an opportunity to focus on different subject areas including Geography.
