Geography Intent Statement
Ludlow Junior School believes that the skills acquired in Geography are invaluable and will prepare children for a life in our diverse and ever-changing world. Geography is taught through exciting termly topics designed to ignite pupils’ love of learning. We aim to equip pupils with knowledge of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with an understanding of human and physical processes. Teachers have carefully planned and differentiated the units of work based on a clear progression of skills which ensures appropriate challenge and accessibility.
Our planning utilises the richness of our unique local environment which extends pupils’ knowledge of the local area. Lessons at Ludlow allow children to explore geography through the use of maps, atlases and digital computer mapping which provides practical experiences within the classroom. Not only this, opportunities to apply knowledge in the real world are provided through fieldwork – truly bringing the subject alive.
Assessment is used at all stages within the curriculum to ensure that pupils are meeting expectations. As a result, by the end of year 6, pupils will have acquired a range of skills, knowledge and understanding so that they are ready to embark on their next stage of education and continue to be inspired by the world around them.
