GEOGRAPHY

The school uses the Kapow scheme of work, for Year 1 to Year 6, that seeks to inspire the children to become curious and explorative thinkers as they gain a diverse knowledge of the world and become geographers. In Early Years we will use the Develop Matters ‘Understanding the World’ to steer through Geography. The aim is to develop pupils’ confidence to question and observe places, measure and record necessary data in various ways, then analyse and present their findings. Pupils will be given opportunity to develop fieldwork skills across each year group.  We aim to build an awareness of how Geography shapes our lives at multiple scales and over time. We are encouraging pupils to become resourceful, active citizens who will have the skills to contribute to and improve the world around them. Our intention is a strong focus on developing both geographical skills and knowledge

Pupils in Key Stage 1 in the topic 'What is it like here?' located features on an aerial photograph of the school and named where they lived ... England and Featherstone. They made a map of the classroom using objects to represent the distance and direction of features in the classroom. They created maps of the playground identifying elements, then they did their own designs to improve the playground. Pupils discussed what they felt about the different areas of the playground and then and looked at the result of a survey they had completed. 

Key Stage 1 pupils in the topic 'What is the weather like in the UK?' named and located the four countries on a map of the UK  and the capital cities. The children named the four seasons, they described the seasonal changes and suggested appropriate clothing that should be worn at those times. Pupils also identified the four compass directions and they used these to describe the location the different features in the school playground. The children observed the daily weather patterns using different instruments. They looked at shadows and observed how they changed throughout the day.
