Geography Curriculum Intent Statement :
At Christ the King R.C Primary, we aim to deliver a high-quality geography curriculum which will inspire pupils’ curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. As well as learning about the physical and human processes, children should be equipped with knowledge about diverse people, places, environments and resources. A key aim for the subject in the school is to promote the skill of active enquiry and investigation, encouraging the children to question how, why, where and what in terms of geographical processes.
Our Geography Curriculum
Autumn 2 Year 1
Our topic this half term was weather and seasons. Here are some examples of the work that we carried out with Mrs. Allen.
Autumn 1 Year 4
Our topic was rivers and the water cycle. Each child used maps, atlases and online mapping. They described the physical features of rivers as well as researched and presented information about a well-known world river. We even visited our local river and had the opportunity to embed all of our learning in class!
Autumn 2 Year 5: Climate Zones.
In our Geography topic this term, we studied the Earth's climate zones. We explored where these climate zones are situated and learned their features and how each zone affects the people who live there. We studied data related to each zone and used our Maths skills to interpret data. We finished off our unit by writing and performing a weather report
Spring 2: South America: Brazil and Rio.
For our Geography topic this term, we looked at the wonderful continent of South America and in particular the vibrant country of Brazil. We drew drew maps, explored the topography , explored the major cities and looked at the physical and human features of this diverse country. The children produced a range of independent pieces of work within art, mathematics, ICT and pieces of writing.
