Geography

It is our intent for the Geography element of our school curriculum, to inspire pupils with a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

We have developed the progression of long term skills and knowledge based long term plans to ensure that children develop a range of deep transferable skills. Our teaching should equip 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, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. At Broomfield, we enable children to develop into global citizens, who understand their role in the world and how their actions have an impact on the world.

We want our children to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes and how this affects landscapes and environments. Emphasis is placed on investigative learning opportunities to help children gain a coherent knowledge of understanding of each unit of work covered throughout the school.

At Broomfield, we encourage our children to investigate local geography, learning about their surroundings and how to protect them.  This is achieved by our children completing fieldwork within our local community.
