Barrow 1618

A Church of England Free School



At Barrow 1618 we aim to teach geography in a way that inspires children, encouraging them to be inquisitive about the world, nurtures their innate curiosity and enables them to develop a range of skills that are useful across their learning. Learning in geography should be experiential, engaging and collaborative; making use of learning outside the classroom to bring learning to life! Our teaching takes on a cross-curricular style where children are encouraged to ask questions, take risks, be creative, reflect, make and learn from mistakes, in a safe environment fostering a ‘growth mindset’. By the end of their primary education, our pupils should be equipped with basic knowledge about geography, including locational knowledge and undertaking of geographical features, but also be equipped with geographical skills, such as considering impact of human and geographical features on the world and the people living in it, particularly in references to global issues. Through a concept-based curriculum, children will develop deep conceptual understanding of comparison, impact, and enquiry as well as sound understanding of locality and geographical features. Children will have a firm understanding of the impact that events and geography have had on the world and can consider the impact that they themselves can enact too.
