Geography at Oldhill
“A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.”
(National Curriculum, 2014)
At Oldhill, our curriculum provides a range of diverse activities through which children learn about their immediate environment as well as those in other parts of the world.
At Key Stage One children, develop their knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality. They develop their understanding through basic subject-specific vocabulary relating to human and physical geography and begin to use geographical skills, including first-hand observation, to enhance their locational awareness. This continues in Key Stage Two where pupils broaden their geographical knowledge and understanding beyond the local area to include the United Kingdom, Europe and North and South America. Children are encouraged to explore the world they live in and to have fun. To ensure this is consistent throughout the school, school leaders monitor the impact of our curriculum through regular monitoring, that includes listening to the voice of our children.
