Our geography curriculum has been designed for the pupils of RPS based on the resources of the Chris Quigley Essentials curriculum. We cover the full breadth of the national curriculum making use of our local area and environment to ensure the learning relevant to our pupils. Our pupils will use a range of resources to support their learning and will develop a variety of geographical skills across each milestone.
There are 3 main geographical concepts which the children will cover which are: ‘investigating places’ (including locations, physical and human features); ‘investigating patterns’, (including physical and human processes and diversity); and ‘communicating geographically’.
At RPS we give our pupils frequent opportunities to participate in fieldwork activities, applying their skills and knowledge, both on and off school grounds.
The 3 main geographical concepts underpin the learning across all year groups, ensuring pupils can develop the skills they need to 'think like a real Geographer'.
