In this section of the website, you will find information about our approach to teaching Geography at Neville’s Cross.
What does Geography look like at Neville’s Cross?
At Neville’s Cross, our curriculum is designed with either a Geography or History focus as the centre of each project. Within this design, there is at least one local focus because we believe this enables our children to place their learning in context. It is our intent that pupils make sense of their place in the local community, region and the world. Our outdoor school environment including forest school provides a safe and secure space for even our youngest children to use fieldwork skills to make observations, comparisons and links. Each Geography project begins with map skills, placing location in context. The starting point is always to refer to previous learning then geographical vocabulary is explicitly shared to ensure children are equipped with a practical tool kit to be a Geographer. The local area is rich in a range of environments to compare and well used by children during their time with us at Neville’s Cross. Projects include trips to contrasting locations and all projects, whether Geography based or not, include regular opportunities to learn outdoors. Our curriculum is organised on a 2-year roll and carefully planned so that children have opportunities to revisit and review previous learning whilst acquiring new knowledge and skills.
