At Lamberhurst St Mary’s, Geography is taught as a discrete subject, across Key Stage 1 & 2. This provides our pupils with the opportunity to nurture their curiosity and fascination of the world around them. Our aim is to develop knowledge & skills and an enriched vocabulary, specific to Human and Physical Geography.
Our broad and rich curriculum has protected Geography time for each year group to study in depth, three Geography Units per year. We use the expert resource, Primary Connected Geography, which matches the primary geography curriculum, through enquiry-based learning.
Each Unit of study is carefully crafted into a termly plan of lessons, which identifies both the Substantive and Disciplinary Knowledge, within this subject.
Our Geography teaching aims to equip our pupils with a fascination about the world around them and its’ people, making links between people (Human Geography) and places (Physical Geography), so that it remains with them for the rest of their lives.
Pupils in EYFS Reception Class develop their understanding of Geography, through their own personal experiences by exploring the natural world around them, beginning to recognise some similarities and differences between their life in this country and life in other countries. Planning in EYFS is crafted carefully to prepare pupils for their transition to Key Stage 1.
