Geography Curriculum Intent
The geography curriculum at Trinity Academy Akroydon is delivered both through the taught and enhanced curriculum, and is designed to enable pupils to be academically successful and to apply their knowledge and skills to become inquisitive learners about the world that we live in, its people and places. This knowledge will empower pupils to shape and have a positive impact on the world that we live in, understanding key issues such as climate change.
The geography curriculum at Trinity Academy Akroydon is designed to deliver the National Curriculum aims and beyond; knowledge is structured so that each term and year build upon one another. This enables pupils to not only gain knowledge of the human and physical aspects of the study of geography, but also to make connections between the two dimensions. The curriculum is designed to ensure that pupils grow to be empathetic, honest and respectful learners who take responsibility for the world that they live in. The geographical study of a rich variety of locations, people, communities and geographical processes underpins the curriculum design to ensure that pupils gain an understanding of the wider world and the influence that geography has on the world we live in today. Through developing the skills of fieldwork and evaluation, our learners are able to critically evaluate and draw conclusions when presented with evidence from different geographical sources. The depth of knowledge gained will give pupils the strong foundations of geographical learning which prepares them for study at Key Stage 3 and beyond.
