Listerdale believe that Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, its interconnectedness and their place in it. The geography curriculum in ACET schools enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can and are used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Geography is an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. The curriculum is designed to ensure that teaching equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
As pupils progress through the school, their growing knowledge about the world helps them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives, equipping them well for the next stage of their learning.
The units are mapped against the progression documents to ensure that learners develop detailed knowledge and skills across the full breadth of the Geography curriculum through engaging and age-appropriate curriculum content. Wherever possible, our units have strong cross-curricular links to other subjects.
Listerdale Geography schemes of work ensure that all teachers are equipped with the secure subject knowledge required to deliver modern, high-quality teaching and learning opportunities for all areas of the Geography National Curriculum.
Lessons are planned alongside the knowledge progression map. Pupils are given the opportunity to develop fundamental skills and build on these through practice and investigations.
Our sequencing along with outstanding teaching create a smooth transition in order to achieve optimal learning outcomes for all pupils.
