The aim of our Geography curriculum at Rush Common is to give our pupils knowledge and understanding of their local environment and the world around them. Children learn that Geography is all about the Earth, its land, its people and how we interact with these. It is to show our pupils the importance of being a valuable and thoughtful citizen and to consider the greater scope of our impact on our world. By the end of Key Stage 2, pupils will have in-depth learning and experience of locational knowledge, place knowledge, human and physical geography and geographical skills and fieldwork.
We value the development of historical and geographical skills as children progress. By developing children’s learning as critical thinkers, effective communicators and empathetic learners, children progress through our school gradually building on higher order thinking skills while also building their general knowledge in these subjects.
