What is the intent of Geography in our school?
At Cranfield Church of England Academy, we believe that a high quality Geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity, fascination and respect in the world and its diverse communities.
How is Geography implemented in our school?
Geography is taught as an intrinsic part of the EYFS Curriculum and the Creative Curriculum in Years One to Four.
It is enriched by a variety of visits, visitors and events. Children cover the objectives outlined in the Cranfield Curriculum. In Early Years, activities form part of continuous provision, and directed activities which deliver objectives from People and Communities in Understanding the World.
In Years One to Four, teachers deliver Geography knowledge and skills as part of a Creative Curriculum unit of learning. Curriculum progression maps ensure children develop skills over a period of time in a logical and progressive sequence.
Geography skills and knowledge are assessed each term against the Cranfield Curriculum objectives.
