Geography at The Crescent Primary School follows the Learning Challenge Curriculum model for a creative curriculum. Three half terms in the year the children are given a geography based big question. They spend the half term increasing their knowledge and understanding of geographical concepts to answer this big question. The children engage in skills based activities and develop links in their learning. The children have their geography learning enriched with local visits, visitors and in school ’hook’ days which keep the children motivated and engaged in the topic. Each topic will have an outcome to support answering the big question, these are often shared with parents or created for a specific audience.
Geography Equality Statement
In Geography we follow the Equality Act 2010 through a range of local and world-wide studies representing different cultures and countries. Pupil’s own ethnicity and those of their families and communities are reflected in the Geography we teach. Diverse representation is embedded in the Geography curriculum. We use a range of images when learning about cultures and countries to avoid unconscious bias and challenge pupils’ preconceptions and stereotypes about the developing world. Marginalised groups are taught using positive representations of global cultures to ensure a culture of inclusion and diversity.
