Geography at Rusper Primary aims to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our 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 children progress, 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 frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
Curriculum content is knowledge and vocabulary rich, and structured in a sequenced order, allowing children to develop their understanding of abstract concepts as they move through school.
