Intent in Geography
Our Geography curriculum follows the core knowledge and understanding of the National Curriculum. Through a cross curricular approach it is our intent to develop children’s curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, making links with their learning. Our aim is to foster a curiosity and fascination about the world in which they live; allowing them to investigate a range of places – beginning with Folkestone and then further afield, both in Britain and abroad, as they move up through the year groups. This progression enables the children to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of the Earth’s physical properties and human processes.
We want our children to develop a real sense of who they are through experiences which allow them to explore and ask questions about the local area, their heritage and what makes their local area unique and special. We aim to enable them to develop their ability to apply geographical skills and to communicate their findings and understanding to others.
