Whinfield Primary School have developed a curriculum which is ambitious and designed to give all pupils the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.
In geography the whole school curriculum has been designed very carefully in conjunction with all staff to ensure that the knowledge and skills are taught in a sequential order which will ensure pupils know more and remember more.
We follow the National Curriculum for geography. At Whinfield, this is an enquiry based curriculum which is adapted to meet the needs of the children as it begins with what is familiar to them and by Year 6 broadens to encompass global topics and geographical concepts. Links to local areas are included wherever possible e.g. in Year 4 for the topic ‘where land meets sea’ the children study Seaham’s coast and in EYFS the children learn about the immediate local area.
A whole school overview is attached to this page detailing our curriculum in geography.
