“Geography is the subject which holds the key to our future” Michael Palin

A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. New National Curriculum 2014

Here at Park End we understand that the teaching of geography 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.
Our aims within the national curriculum for geography are to ensure all pupils are taught

  • Locational knowledge
  • Place knowledge
  • Human and physical geography
  • Geographical skills and fieldwork

Our Spring Term is given a geography focus to support these aims. Geography knowledge and skills are taught using a cross curricular approach. Acquired knowledge and skills are applied across a range of topics. In addition to using English skills, there is a key focus on teaching position and direction in the geography curriculum.

We also believe experiences are important to help children’s understanding, therefore children will have the chance to experience:

  • Visits to Sunderland Winter Gardens, Danby, Guisborough, Grizedale and Hamsterley Forest
  • Visits from the Wildlife Trust
  • Local walks
  • Orienteering
  • Residentials – Robinwood and PGL (Newby Whiske)
