At Ellistown, our Geography curriculum is designed to provide our students with the knowledge base they need to enable them to study the subject at university, to access subject knowledge in their future career, and enable them to be active members of society. The geography curriculum incorporates fundamental geographical knowledge and skills, allowing students to build on a firm foundation in future years. Each year concepts, vocabulary and knowledge are introduced that are then capitalised on in subsequent years, laying important foundations of much of their future geographical learning. The Local Fieldwork unit is in Year 6, so that students are exposed to geographical research in KS2. This is a crucial part of a child’s geographical education and we have intentionally incorporated this unit at the end of KS2 to capitalise on their greater maturity and geographical knowledge.
