Without Geography- you’re nowhere. –Author Unknown


INTENT
Geography at Elveden C of E Primary Academy extends far beyond the walls of the classroom. Our aim is to provide the children with a breadth of memorable experiences, to shape our pupils into curious and considerate global citizens. By the time our students leave us, they will be well equipped with the skills
and the knowledge to explore the world around them and have a greater understanding of their planet.

We also intend for the children to develop an in depth knowledge of our community and locality. We want the children to appreciate and respect the wonderful world that the Lord has made us and encourage stewardship of their surroundings.


IMPLEMENTATION
At Elveden C of E Primary Academy, our geography curriculum follows the National Curriculum and provides children with an array of enriching opportunities, with a strong focus on outdoor learning. Our children experience a wide range of school trips, including our popular residential trip to Eaton Vale and a
number of local area visits to develop the children’s awareness of their locality. In lessons, children develop their geographical enquiry skills though exploring physical environments, human interactions and how the two areas intertwine with each other.


IMPACT
We use a range of strategies to assess what skills and knowledge the children have attained each term including the following:


• Book looks
• Pupil voice
• Regular feedback each lesson
