"Where a love of learning grows"

  1. Our Curriculum
  2. Geography


Geography Intent:

In our school our Christian Values shapes all we do. We pride ourselves on applying our Christian Values to ensure Upton Snodsbury CofE First School is a place where a love of learning grows. At Upton Snodsbury CofE First School, we inspire a love of geography which, in turn, fosters a desire to understand, appreciate and explore the world around us. We believe that children must first feel connected to the world around them from the youngest age whilst also being exposed to other cultures through the use of texts and a range of media. 

As children progress into KS1 we need to allow children to develop a deeper understanding of their world by starting to explore fieldwork techniques, learning the difference between human and physical features in their local environment and beginning to compare “their place” to other places. At this stage children should have a strong sense of their place within the world. 

Children in KS2 continue to develop their fieldwork skills to allow them to become the competent geographers of the future. They explore a range of locations around the world exploring the relationship between the earth and its people. Throughout this, children develop strong links to their local community through specific units of study, fieldwork and a range of enrichment opportunities which foster a passion for their locality.   In preparation for the future, we want our children to be aware of the challenges facing the earth; showing compassion for others and a drive to improve the outcomes for everyone and our planet.
