Teach a range of geographical tools and techniques that pupils use as they work as Geographers to improve their knowledge and understanding of the interaction of people and the environments in which they live:
Develop data gathering skills through class based enquiries and fieldwork investigations;
Understand the use of statistics in the displaying and interpretation of data;
Communicate geographical information including speaking and listening (oracy) and writing at length;
Integrate geographical skills within the context of relevant, engaging and appropriately challenging key question led enquiries.
Use an enquiry planning process:
Identify the appropriate subject outcomes for the stage of learning;
Compare and contrast
Reach informed conclusions
Make reasoned judgements
Agree the subject content focus:
- Consider what is most meaningful and relevant about this content for the children to know; do; think and act;
- Identify key enquiry questions: When; Where; What; Who; Why and How to lead learning;
- Do less better - allowing scope for children to progress – EYFS to YR6.
