The intent of the Geography curriculum at Sneyd Academy is to inspire children’s curiosity and interest to explore the world that we live in and its relationship with its people. We intend to equip children with geographical skills to develop their knowledge through studying places, people and natural and human environments. We recognise that Geography is an investigative subject and we intend to develop these skills. Through our teaching, we intend to provoke thought, questions and to encourage children to discover answers to their own questions through exploration and research. It is intended that pupils will gain a greater understanding and knowledge of the world and their place in it and ignite a love of the subject which they carry forward throughout their education.
Our Geography Curriculum
The Geography curriculum at Sneyd Academy has been constructed using the National Curriculum objectives. These cover four focus areas:
- Locational knowledge
- Comparative knowledge
- Human and physical geography
- Map skills
We have given detail to each of the NC objectives and constructed our year group curriculums as seen below.
