Geography Intent

The geography curriculum is concerned with the study of people and places, including human and physical processes which shape the world in which we all live together. At Woolston CE primary SChool the intent of our geography curriculum is to inspire in pupils a curiousity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. We believe geography helps children to appreciate and undetsand the diverse cultures of the world and as a result to respect others wherever in the world they live.

Geography Pedagogy

Every unit in KS1/KS2 has a knowledge organiser which shows the key knowledge, skills and vocabulary for the unit. At the start of the unit children have the chance to reflect on what they already know and compare this to what they have learnt by the end of the unit Every unit has the opportunity for map/atlas work and should compare/link to our local area of Woolston/Warrington/Liverpool. Each lesson begins looking at the knowledge organiser and recapping any prior knowledge from this year or previous years. As content is covered, the children highlight their knowledge organiser. The main part of the lesson will focus on a particular skill or new substantive knowledge.
