Geography at Kingsway
When we learn about Geography at Kingsway, we start close to home in our local area and extend over the Key Stage to South America and beyond. By the end of Year 6, pupils have gained the knowledge to understand the world around them, through both human and physical geography, and the skills to explore our planet independently. Units are also planned in conjunction with other subject leaders to develop cross-curricular links with History, English, Art and Music. We never assume knowledge and always nurture curiosity.
We use an enquiry based approach to learning, acknowledging that an important aspect of the geography curriculum is geographical skills as well as knowledge. Children learn Key Facts each half term and take a quiz to help them remember. Knowledge and skills are presented in a variety of ways to ensure all children, regardless of reading ability, are able to access learning. In this way we prepare all of our children, regardless of background, for their secondary education.
