Here at Stoneydelph Primary School, we aim to deliver the Geography curriculum via our cross-curricular themed projects. Our aim is to inspire children’s curiosity by provoking thoughts and questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Children will explore how the world has changed over time and their role in maintaining its future, alongside learning valuable geographical skills, which will be applicable in their wider lives.
As each project has a subject driver, geography at Stoneydelph will be mainly taught during the Geography driven projects. Check out the different landscapes and areas of the world you will be learning about below:
EYFS- The Big Wide World
Key stage 1- Coastline and Bright Lights Big City
Lower key stage 2- Misty Mountains, Rocks, Relics and Rumbles, Road Trip USA
Upper key stage 2- Sow, Grow and Farm and Frozen Kingdom
With a carefully mapped curriculum and by identifying learning opportunities to use the key skills used in geography, we strive to create a supportive and collaborative ethos for learning by providing investigative and enquiry-based learning opportunities. Emphasis is placed on opportunities to help children deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes and how this affects landscapes and environments.
