Humanities - Geography
At Rosehill, the study of Geography allows our pupils to explore, experience and develop an understanding of such areas as their local environment, e.g. their school, local shops, the weather, jobs, water, maps, directions and exploring the differences between the country and the town. As pupils move through the key stages, they are involved in activities to help them develop greater independence.
Skills developed through geography help pupils to make sense of their surroundings and the wider world.
To ensure high standards of teaching and learning in geography, we implement a curriculum that is progressive throughout the whole school. It is taught on a rolling programme with history. At Rosehill, geography is approached in a practical manner. The child is the explorer and their task is to progressively discover the world beyond themselves. Geography is exciting, enjoyable, and relevant to the explorer. It allows success and generates feelings of worth and wonder, enabling all children to gain ‘real-life’ experiences.
The geography curriculum provides a broad Scheme of Work framework and outlines the knowledge and skills taught in each Key Stage.
