Geography lessons at Winnington Park inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world they live in. They develop children’s knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality. Lessons take place both in and outside the classroom and are sequenced to ensure children’s learning builds on what they have previously learnt by following our progressive knowledge and skills documents. Teachers check children’s understanding effectively, identify and correct misunderstandings. Teachers ensure children embed key concepts in their long – term memory and apply them fluently.
The aims of the geography curriculum are to ensure pupils:
- Develop their locational awareness.
- Use geographical vocabulary fluently.
- Build an awareness of human and physical geography.
- Develop their place knowledge.
Equality of opportunity at Winnington Park Primary School means that all children, taking account of gender, age, ability, disability, ethnic origin, faith, culture, social circumstances and sexual orientation have full access to all the curricular, pastoral and social opportunities offered by our Geography curriculum.
