Geography

At Great Eccleston Copp Church of England School, our geography curriculum aims to inspire children with a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. In Geography, we aim to provide high-quality, engaging and enjoyable lessons to enable the children to develop a coherent knowledge and understanding of the world in which they live. Throughout the school, children learn about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. We believe it is important to nurture and encourage children’s natural curiosity, to shape and direct it and to turn the children into inquisitive, questioning learners who look closely at the world around them and begin to be able to interpret what they see. We aspire to nurture the children to develop a sense of their own identity and understand the challenges of their time.

 

Geography teaching focuses on enabling children to think as geographers. We place an emphasis on mapping and fieldwork skills and understanding the world in which we live and place a high-quality text underneath our teaching and learning. We focus on helping children understand the world in which they live, encouraging them to ask questions such as, ‘why?’, ‘where?’, ‘what? and ‘how?’. We aim to use a variety of techniques to simulate interest and a questioning approach to each geography theme studied. We encourage teachers to plan visits to geographical sites and create links with the wider community.

 

Each geography unit results in a Double Page Spread or a Mini Double Page Spread. This is where the children are given the opportunity to showcase what they have learned throughout the unit, focussing on vocabulary and knowledge.
