A high-quality geography education inspires in children a curiosity and fascination about the world, that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. At Barnack, we enable children to develop a rich knowledge of places, people, resources and environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
We aim to ensure children:
develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places, including their defining physical and human characteristics;
understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world;
are competent in the skills needed to: collect, analyse and communicate with a range of geographical data, interpret a range of sources of geographical information, communicate geographical information in a variety of ways.
Our Geography planning primarily utilises the Geography elements of the Prospectus scheme combined with other resources which links to each class’ topic. Substantial work is cross curricular and combined with English for writing for a wide range of purposes.
The children acquire an understanding of key Geographical concepts and information and a broader understanding of the role and impact of human geography on society and the wider world.
