Geography

At Whyteleafe, our geography curriculum is taught from Early Years through to Year 6. Geography is an immersive, topical subject which equips children with the knowledge and understanding of the natural and human world.  Our curriculum allows children to progressively develop practical geography skills, such as using an atlas and compass; lifelong skills they can carry forward.  The broad and varied curriculum, which includes learning about our local area of Whyteleafe as well as different places and cultures, educates children to use critical thinking skills; enabling them to look at the world in an analytical way. These skills are fundamental so children can adapt to the interconnected world they live in. Children at Whyteleafe, appreciate the relevance of geography to everyone and enjoy opportunities to celebrate their own culture and learn about others.  

Throughout their geography learning journey, children are given unique opportunities to share their learning and develop their oracy skills, including independent research and short presentations.

The progressive nature of the Whyteleafe Curriculum develops a child’s geographical understanding and skills; building their confidence and embedding their understanding each year. Children are challenged through our geography curriculum through the development of critical thinking skills and new learning builds upon prior knowledge to ensure progression.  

Regular teacher and self assessment of a child’s knowledge and application of skills, in a variety of situations, allows teachers to develop bespoke learning opportunities to support and challenge children. Children are given a number of experiences through a range of trips, workshops and visitors.

By the end of year 6, we want our geography curriculum to empower children to become confident, respectful, proactive, global citizens who consider the future of the world.  They will have a key understanding of the key features of the world and their place within it.
