We are following a different curriculum plan this Autumn as we prioritise keeping everyone safe, re-establishing routines and relationships, staying healthy and revisiting learning the children did at home during lockdown.
A high quality, enquiry based geography education is pivotal at Bonner. We believe that geography should inspire pupil’s curiosity and fascination with the world. Children are urged to explore diverse places, people and our natural and human environment. We encourage Bonner children to have a deeper understanding of our global community and how they fit into it.
Children will deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes and our ever changing geographical environment.
Our progressive geography curriculum will enhance children’s geographical knowledge and skills which will be transferable in the modern world. Children are encouraged to investigate and explore the wonders of our world throughout their time here at Bonner.
What should we see children doing?
Locating places around the world
Showing their understanding of key aspects of human and physical features of our world.
Exploring the similarities and differences by studying the human and physical geography of parts of our world
Use geographical vocabulary
Develop and enhance their geographical skills
Participate in fieldwork in rural and urban areas
Assessment and progression
Assessment for Geography is currently being completed in the same way as History.
Most units have access to an end of unit quiz that can assess the children’s ability to recall the knowledge learnt throughout the topic. Each unit ends with a final activity/project (outlined on the Term Overview ‘Final Outcome’) which the children have to complete. The children’s skills and knowledge can be assessed by the teacher through the child’s discussion and their ability to complete the final activity/project.
Teachers will use the following progression statements to support their assessment process throughout each unit of learning.
Children will be taught to be responsible geographers who will have a love for and feel a part of our global community.
