Geography

INTENT

At Osbaldwick Primary Academy, we aim for a high quality geography curriculum which should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people.

Our teaching equips pupils with knowledge about places and people; resources in the environment; physical and human processes; formation and use of landscapes.

We also want children to develop geographical skills: collecting and analysing data; using maps, globes, aerial photographs and digital mapping to name and identify countries, continents and oceans; and communicating information in a variety of ways.

We want children to enjoy and love learning about geography by gaining this knowledge and skills, not just through experiences in the classroom, but also with the use of fieldwork and educational visits. We are committed to providing children with opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about their local area of Osbaldwick and York so that they can develop of real sense of who they are, their heritage and what makes our local area unique and special.
