Geography Curriculum Intent
At Bushfield Road Infant School, our intent is that our curriculum will encourage curiosity, fascination and knowledge of the world around them that will remain with them for life. The curriculum is planned and sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on prior learning, and is incorporated across the curriculum where possible.
In the Foundation Stage children will develop a wider knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Pupils will learn through first-hand experiences, to explore, problem solve, predict, think critically, make decisions and talk about the people, objects and changes in their environments.
As they progress through Key Stage One, children will develop their knowledge and understanding about the United Kingdom, their own locality and the world. They should understand basic subject specific vocabulary and begin to use geographical skills. They will learn how to use maps, atlases and globes, as well as compass directions. The children will also study seasonal and daily weather patterns in the United Kingdom, as well as hot and cold areas of the world in relation to the Equator and the North/South Poles.
