Learning

Geography

Geography is taught at Allfarthing as part of the topic curriculum. Cross curricular units are carefully planned to ensure that the children are able to develop the skills and knowledge outlined in the national curriculum, but also to reflect the interests and values of the school community.

The children learn through a range of experiences, including trips to local and national museums, places of interest, workshops, as well as work in the classroom. We teach Geography to inspire pupils to have a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Teaching equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources, and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s physical and human processes. The children also learn a range of Geographical skills which include:

  • the interpretation of a range of sources of Geographical information including maps , diagrams, globes, aerial photographs  and Geographical information systems
  • the ability to communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, using numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length
  • competency in collecting, analysing, and collecting a range of data gathered through experience of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes
