At Fairisle Junior School, we are aspiring to nurture and encourage all of our pupils to become enthusiastic and inquisitive geographers. We want all of our children to be inspired in their curiosity and fascination about the world that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
By the end of their time at Fairisle Junior School children will:
- Understand where they live in relation to the rest of the world.
- Have opinions that they can justify through their understanding of human and physical features.
- Be able to use research and present what they have learned in different ways.
- Have a passion and a curiosity for the world and the people who live in it.
- Be able to use geographical skills through fieldwork
What will children learn?
Children will learn all about the world around them, from their doorstep to the furthest corners of the Earth. They will explore both the physical and human features; discover what this looks like in different places and inquire how one impacts the other.
Throughout their learning, children will explore their local area, extreme weathers, tropical rainforests and so much more. Each year they will build upon their previous learning and make links through new discoveries.
Their learning will also link to their historical learning, where they will be able to discover how and why areas have changed across the years, from Ancient Rome to modern day.
How will we do this?
Throughout their time at our school, children will get the opportunity to get hands-on experience in the field. Trips will bring their geography learning to life and show them what it looks like in the world around them.
The geography curriculum is taught with an interactive and hands-on approach.
