At Bridge and Patrixbourne CEP School, children will develop a sense of place and become invested in the pivotal geographical challenges facing our world today. Through a raft of learning experiences, both inside and outside the classroom, children will develop the skills of a geographer and leave Year 6 as advocates for a geographically aware world, using both local and global case studies as a lens for their learning.
The teaching of Geography across the school enables pupils to explore our planet whilst constantly comparing and contrasting with our local area. We want the children at Bridge and Patrixbourne CEP school to develop a range of Geographical skills (Locational Knowledge, Place Knowledge, Human and Physical Geography, map skills and field work) so that they understand more about the world by the time they leave in Year 6.
At Bridge and Patrixbourne School we focus on a rich variety of topics that meet off various different targets of the National Curriculum in each topic. Where possible, we link our Geography lessons in a cross curricular way, allowing pupils to delve deeper into what they are learning by studying both fictional and non-fiction texts that relate to our topics.
Teaching & Learning in Geography
Whilst Geography is taught throughout the year, at the end of Term 1 we review and celebrate the Geography that is being taught and you can see examples of the children's work below.
