Geography at KAPSH

Click here to read more about our Geography Curriculum...

We believe that the teaching of Geography should acknowledge the pivotal role human beings can play in securing the future of our planet. Here at KAPSH, we provide opportunities for pupils to articulate their rationale behind this subject and to develop their understanding of the world that they live in. Within our knowledge rich curriculum, pupils are given time to build on the geographical vocabulary they have learnt, deepen their geographical understanding of key concepts such as cultural diversity and global citizenship. We inspire to in still a love for enquiry and agency in our pupils, motivating them to take an active part in contributing to and growing up to be conscious and connected global citizens.

At Krishna Avanti Primary school, our aim is to inspire all pupils with a sense of curiosity, awe and wonder about the world and its people, that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. We aim to equip them with knowledge about diverse places, people, and resources, together with a deeper understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. We want our pupils to be able to look further into how this interaction is interconnected and to be able to explain this using correct vocabulary. We build on their skills include reading maps, atlases, globes, and digital/computer mapping, using compasses, grid references, symbols and keys as well as observing, collecting, and analysing data from fieldwork. In addition, we aim to provide pupils with an all-inclusive, stimulating, and enriching curriculum through real-life experiences such as local fieldwork, residential trips and exploring the school environment through nature trails etc.
