Geography

Geography
Intent

At Bramingham Primary we believe that geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. We shape our geography curriculum to ensure it is fully inclusive to every child and children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. Our Geography curriculum also acknowledges our diverse community and enables children to develop new vocabulary, knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas. It equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, our local landmarks and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.  

We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people with our core values embedded through it all, which will remain with them for the rest of their lives, equipping them well for further education and beyond. 

They will be using a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems. Fieldwork will be undertaken where possible to deepen children's understanding of the geographical process.
 

Geography is an enquiry led subject that seeks answers to fundamental questions such as:

  • Where is this place?
  • What is it like? (And why?)
  • How and why is it changing?
  • How does this place compare with other places?
  • How and why are places connected?
