During 2019-2020 we worked hard to develop our teaching of Geography. In September 2020 we were delighted to be awarded the Silver Primary Geography Quality Mark. Strengths were identified in all areas, including:

Pupils' knowledge of places and their positive attitude towards geography.

Good subject knowledge of the teachers and a well-designed curriculum.

Children's understanding of differences and diversity, and the impact they can have.

A clear vision for geography.

Since 2020, we have continued to develop and enhance Geography learning across the whole school.

What does geography look like at Cinnamon Brow?

At Cinnamon Brow, we strongly believe that children need to be taught Geography because it helps us to better understand people, places and environments and the interactions between them. It is vital that children understand how places are changing so that they can better predict and work towards likely and preferred futures as they are the future. We strongly believe that through providing an excellent Geography curriculum, we enable our children to become ‘geographers’ by giving them the foundation of knowledge, skill and understanding to enable them to have a positive impact on the future of our world. Our curriculum is founded on four drivers: possibilities, spirituality, diversity and communities which are interwoven into all learning and will support the development of children’s geographical understanding as they progress through school. We aim to develop children’s:

• Contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places including their ability to define physical and human characteristics

• understanding of the physical, social and economic forces which shape those places and the people who live there.

• Field work and mapping skills of location, symbols, scale, perspective and map use.

Pupil voice forms an intergral part of our spiral curriculum. Children were asked to explain how they use maps in their classes:

Lockdown has forced us to change the way we are teaching geography at the moment, but that hasn't stopped high quality teaching from taking place! Teachers have matched our long term plan to units of work produced by The Oak National Academy. This way, we are still covering the National Curriculum objectives we had planned to teach this term. Take a look at some of the fantastic work produced by our y3 and y4 pupils:
