The Geography curriculum at Le Rondin School has been designed to be exciting and challenging for all learners, regardless of their abilities or backgrounds and places the child at the very centre of everything.
We have chosen to base our curriculum on the Bailiwick Curriculum and Chris Quigley curriculum. It is organised into a cyclical progression model that builds progressively towards pupils acquiring a key knowledge and skills. It also provides learners with subject-specific vocabulary, ‘sticky knowledge’ and a variety of first-hand experiences which aids in sparking their interest, relate new learning to their own experience and to reflect upon and respond to the things that they see and hear and touch.
The content and coverage of our curriculum is carefully organised by each year group through a long-term plan. Content knowledge, vocabulary and skills will then be planned for at a greater level of detail in the medium-term plan
The intent of the geography curriculum is that our pupils have a deep understanding of their local environment and the diverse surroundings in the wider world, with appreciation to human and physical characteristics. Our curriculum allows children to build on prior learning about physical and human processes and the formation and use of landscapes and environments
