At Carr Mill we believe that the learning of Geography should inspire pupils to have a curiosity and fascination about the world and it's people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our curriculum follows the National Curriculum with Geography being taught discretely- we have worked as a school to develop each unit and ensure that it is sequenced and progressive across each phase to ensure learning can be built upon in each of the areas of geography: Place and location knowledge, Human and Physical Geography and Geographical skills and Fieldwork. Each unit incorporates key substantive and disciplinary knowledge and techniques such as using maps and skills that have been carefully mapped out over each phase. These ensure that we can measure the impact of what the children have learned and remembered in each unit so when they come to a unit in a subsequent phase that their knowledge can be deepened.
My name is Miss Farrall and I lead Geography at Carr Mill Primary School. My role is crucial in developing geography teaching, learning and resources across the school as best to support teachers, motivate pupils, monitor progress and achieve consistently high standards.
I believe that the teaching of Geography should inspire pupils to have a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. By the time our children leave Carr Mill, I wish for them to be responsible global citizens, who have a solid understanding of place and appreciate and respect the diverse cultures and traditions around the world due to the units and opportunities we have planned and sequenced for them.
I believe that Geography helps to prepare our children for life in the 21st century with all its currently unknown possibilities. I love to see children being passionate about where they come from and understand about our beautiful world that we can explore.
