At Scarcroft it is our intent to foster a love of geography, through a range of positive experiences. We want to inspire in children a curiosity about and fascination with the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our teaching is based on developing children’s geographical knowledge. Pupils study geography discreetly and through several topics across the year and develop detailed knowledge and skills across the curriculum.

Children leave Scarcroft equipped with the geographical skills and knowledge that will enable them to be ready for the curriculum at Key Stage 3 and for life as an adult in the wider world. We want children to thoroughly enjoy learning about geography, therefore encouraging them to undertake new life experiences in the wider world now and in the future.

To become excellent geographers, key skills are mapped out across each year group. These skills progress and build through each year.

Locational knowledge, place knowledge, human and physical place features and geographical skills and fieldwork.

Our curriculum ensures that children understand what makes places similar and different through different lenses. Our carefully mapped out key knowledge also means that children understand how the world has changed as a result of human developments and also natural occurrences. Through practical activities, such as map reading, field visits and examining a range of sources, our children are able to apply fieldwork skills to gain a better understanding of how our world is changing and what it was like in the past.
