At Bexton we believe a high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching 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. As pupils progress through the school, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the framework and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
At Bexton, our pupils are also passionate advocates for the environment with a thriving eco-team which plans half termly events focused on protecting the planet and making a positive difference to our carbon footprints.
Please see our long term planning grid which translates the National Curriculum into our curriculum planning. We have carefully crafted our long term plan to include locational knowledge about the local area and to link with the history long term plan.
