At Lord Street, we want to enable pupils to take on the role of a geographer: exploring, discovering and beginning to make sense of the world around them is an important consideration when planning for the seven areas of inter-connected learning.
Children in our school should be able to:
- Investigate places,
- Investigate patterns,
- Communicate Geographically
Our aim is to develop children's contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both
terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics.
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.
Through the explicit teaching of the Geography skills, both the teachers and the children assess their learning continuously throughout the lesson. Our assessment systems enable teachers to make informed judgements about the depth of their learning and the progress they have made over time.
