Geography at FPJS

At FPJS we value Geography and want to inspire in our pupils a curiosity, passion and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our Geography curriculum aims to 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, their growing purposeful knowledge about the world will help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, the formation and use of landscapes and environments and an up to date understanding of the real world issues that are relevant to our planet today.


How we teach Geography at FPJS

We use our Sticky Knowledge to guide our teaching and learning in geography with the aim of developing our learners to become passionate and independent geographers.  As part of each lesson and our Solid Six weekly recall, pupils at FPJS continually recap their previous learning to ensure an excellent depth of understanding and value attributed to each learning opportunity.  Our pupils learn geographical disciplinary skills required to use subject specific resources such as globes, maps, aerial photography and current statistics.  This enables our pupils to develop their geographical skills, develop a contextual knowledge of globally significant places and understand key facts about physical and human geographical features.  Learning is further supported by answering a key geographical question at the end of each unit of learning to showcase each child's understanding of an area of study.  These questions, which are introduced at the start of the unit of work, are answered in a variety of ways including written tasks, film making and other creative work.
