Geography Vision

At St Anne’s, we are committed to providing a high-quality geography education.  Our committed plan is to support pupils from the very youngest to the oldest by capitalising on their natural curiosity and fascination about the world and it's people, providing awe and wonder moments and giving them a secure ‘sense of place’.

We aim to support the development of knowledge and skill progression throughout children's school experience from Nursery onwards.  So that by Year 6 children will have a secure contextual knowledge of location, a deep understanding of geographical processes, the competency to use a range of geographical skills, and a keen enthusiasm for the subject.

 

In addition to the planned topics, each year group will undertake short tasks to enhance their Sense of Place, focusing on developing their fieldwork and mapping skills. 

Geography Termly Overview

Understanding the World

The Reception children chose an area of our outdoor space that they did not like and wanted to improve.  The corner space was unused, bare and uninspiring.  However with help from our Year 5 Buddies we transformed this space into a bug sanctuary and now we think it looks beautiful.  

Understanding the World targets for Reception aged children include:

  • Can talk about some of the things they have observed such as plants, animals, natural and found objects
  • Shows care and concern for living things and the environment
  • Comments and asks questions about aspects of their familiar world such as the place where they live or the natural world
  • They talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one another
