Geography

Geography Long Term Plan

At Salterhebble, our intent is to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum for Geography; providing a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum; ensuring the progressive development of geographical concepts, knowledge and skills; and for the children to develop a love for geography. Furthermore, we aim to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. 

Through our teaching, we intend to provoke thought and questions, encouraging children to build resilience, to discover answers to their own questions. We encourage pupils to explore and research, using first-hand fieldwork experiences, to enable them to gain a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, and their place within it.

Our curriculum is enriched with a range of experiences, enhancing learning opportunities for our children and increasing their cultural capital. These experiences include:

  • Visits within the local area
  • Visits beyond the local area
  • Inviting visitors into school
  • Supporting community and charity work
