Geography Intent

At Highfield, we believe that a knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and environments, together with an understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes, help children make sense of the world around them and of their place within it. It develops their curiosity and understanding about people, places and the environment, and how they are interconnected. The topics chosen promote a progressive range of skills, knowledge and understanding that enable children to link concepts and build upon their learning. For example, skills such as using and devising maps are taught sequentially, so children can deepen their knowledge and understanding year on year. Enquiry based lessons provide an opportunity to develop critical thinking and analysis. We use current case studies, and children are encouraged to consider the various viewpoints of involved stakeholders from diverse backgrounds when responding to localised or global issues. Fieldwork is essential to geographical practice, and whether wading in a river as part of a river study, or visiting locations for comparative studies, children make observations, collect data, then analyse and present their findings.
