“Geography is a subject which holds the key to our future.”
At TLA, our geography curriculum is designed to inspire children to be fascinated about the world which encompasses its people, composition, history and future.
In EYFS, (Year R), geography is mainly experienced through Understanding the World, Considering People, Cultures and Communities and the Natural World.
In Key Stages One and Two, Geography is taught as a standalone subject and, where appropriate, links are made to other subjects. Every geography unit is based around an overarching theme and ensures coverage of locational knowledge, place knowledge, human and physical geography and geographical skills and fieldwork.
By developing geographical skills, our children can make sense of their own surroundings through learning about the local area, comparing it with other regions in the United Kingdom and the rest of the world. They are able to collect, analyse data and interpret a range of geographical sources, including maps, globes and aerial photographs.
Our curriculum aims to inspire our children to think about their own place in the world and develop a sense of responsibility towards the environment and their role in the interaction between physical and natural processes.
