During Key Stage 2 pupils will be taught about location knowledge, place knowledge, human and physical geography, geographical skills and fieldwork. Geography topics are linked to Connected Curriculum topics.
At Bridge Junior School we believe that high quality provision in Geography should inspire all pupils towards a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. At each stage pupils should be aware of geographical and environmental issues such as natural disasters, climate change and Fair Trade. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge provides the tools and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
