Geography – curriculum information

Our lead teacher for geography is Miss Tomlinson.

Throughout Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 in geography, pupils will be involved in investigation a variety of places and environments both locally, with in the United Kingdom and also in a global context. Geographical knowledge and skills will be taught ensuring that children progress through the big ideas of place, space and scale, the environment and interactions.

Geographical enquiry is undertaken inside and outside of the classroom and pupils are taught key skills such as; observing and recording, asking geographical questions, analysing evidence and drawing conclusions. These will be used to promote awareness of local, national and global environmental issues.

Pupils learn about vocabulary specific to the subject, the use of globes, maps and plans at a range of scales, fieldwork techniques and instruments, and the use of secondary sources of information including aerial photographs.

Local visits and field trips will be promoted and will be used to provide deeper learning opportunities for the children, enabling them to apply the knowledge they have gained.

I would like to express my gratitude to the extent the school supports the festival of Eid Ul Adha. Not only by allowing the children a day to celebrate with their families but also by celebrating these events in the school as well.

Parent's comments

Pupils work hard to be positive role models and give support to others. They are
very proud of the work they do as restorative practitioners, play buddies and wellbeing ambassadors. This is a highly inclusive school.

Pearson Primary School has gone above and beyond the realms of every day teaching and learning in this challenging year. Thank you to the wonderful staff for all they do, both seen and unseen. Our child is happy, inspired, challenged, supported and making progress – what more could we ask for?

I have full faith in Mrs Clarkson and her wonderful team. They have bent over backwards over the past year to make sure my daughter has an education and I know they will continue to do so. They are amazing and I am so great full for their support for my child throughout the lockdowns. They have exceeded my expectations as they always go the extra mile.
