Geography

A high quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.’    DfE (2013)

 

Geography at Elms Farm

Elms Farm Primary School values Geography because it develops pupils curiosity about places and people. Geography helps pupils to raise and answer questions about the Natural and Human worlds. It gives children a sense of their immediate and wider community. Geography gives children the knowledge and desire to explore the wider world and equips children with key skills in which to do this.

 

Aims:

  • To equip children with the knowledge and understanding of their locality, the United Kingdom and the wider world. 
  • To give children an understanding of vocabulary relating to human and physical features of the world.
  • To develop first hand experiences through fieldwork. 
  • To develop Geographical skills to enable them to live effectively in the wider world. 
  • To develop an understanding of how places are changing and how environmental and climatic factors influence our lives. 
  • To develop an understanding of cultures and different ways of living. 

 

Remote Learning in Geography

 

We continue to provide our geography curriculum throughout remote teaching.

In response to our community, we know that geography lessons need to be flexible and so we track the teaching that has been provided and ensure that we understand where are pupils are in their learning to formulate our return to school plan.

 

We are adapting our geography teaching to enable our children to interpret geographical information including maps and globes and develop contextual knowledge of geographically significant places. 

 

Have a look at some of our 'Remote Education' in geography below.
