Geography Curriculum

Our Intention

Geography is an important part of teaching and learning at Brudenell, and along with History, is a key aspect of cross-curricular learning which includes Art and English.

Teaching and learning focuses on the 4 curriculum areas of geography:

  • Locational Knowledge
  • Place Knowledge
  • Human and Physical Geography
  • Geography Skills and Fieldwork

The teaching and learning intentions for Geography are to inspire pupil’s curiosity and interest in their local, national and global world- both natural and man-made. As our pupils come from a very inner-city area, it is important for them to experience a broader range of environments where possible.

Pupils are exposed to the knowledge about their world and the people and places within it. We aim to encourage not only a deeper understanding, but also a caring responsibility for our cities, countries and climate.

 Geographical knowledge will help to prepare them for the future whether that be with the skills to travel, navigate and understand their surroundings or for a career in environmental sciences and beyond!

Our Implementaion

Geography is a practical, immersive and creative subject which is taught in a variety of ways to foster interest, enthusiasm and a development of skills and understanding.

Through high-quality fiction and non-fiction texts, concrete experiences such as trips, visits, exploring the school grounds and local area, use of atlases, maps, compasses and digital images, technology (google maps/ ipads/ documentary clips), specific technical vocabulary linked to a topic; and art, diagrams and design, pupils build on their knowledge and skills each year and enjoy their topics.

Geography is taught over a 3-year cycle covering all curriculum objectives.
