Our Geography Lead is Mr Graham Lawrence.
In Abbotskerswell Primary School, children cover the four core aspects of Geographic understanding through our curriculum. These aspects are:
Human and Physical Geography
Geographical Skills & Field Work
We have a two-year rolling cycle, alternating termly between Geography and History. This allows our children to spend a significant amount of time exploring a particular aspect of the curriculum. We want our Geographers to develop and embed key skills, knowledge and vocabulary that will be meaningful, purposeful and rememberable.
We have used 'Connected Geography' by the Geography Specialist 'David Weatherly' to develop our enquiry-based curriculum. We use our own locality, to bring the curriculum alive and provide first-hand experiences for the children of our school.
