March 2022 Year 1 Local Walk

Year 1 went on a local walkabout.  We decided that our local area of Rawmarsh is a town.  We went on a walk around the local area to see if we could find the evidence to prove that this was true.  We found large roads, with lots of traffic, lots of residential housing, businesses and lots of evidence of community transport.

INTENT

At St. Joseph’s, we intend for our children to be skilled Geographers who take part in engaging lessons where they develop curiosity and passion to explore and preserve our precious world. We want our children to want to travel the world and experience a range environments, cultures and

 

We will deliver a Geography curriculum that ensures our children:

  • Equip pupil with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and environments

  • Have a deep understanding of the Earth’s physical and human processes

  • Develop an understanding of how landscapes and environments develop and change over time

  •  independent learning through Geographical skills and fieldwork within our local area

 

IMPLEMENTATION

The National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage framework provides the basis for our Geography curriculum. The Geography curriculum is taught through the implementation of a two year cycle where children explore big questions which link to a range of topic areas. Knowledge Organisers are used for each topic which lays out the knowledge, vocabulary and skills that are covered within each unit of learning, showing progression of these areas build from Early Years, to KS1, to LKS2 to UKS2.

 

IMPACT

Children will:

  • have a secure understanding of the geographical features of their local surroundings (Rawmarsh and Rotherham) and how it compares to other places around the world

  • have developed their locational knowledge significantly so that they can identify the seven continents and countries and major cities of places they have studied in further depth

  • have an understanding of how the Earth is changing and the factors that impact upon this

  • be competent when using maps and other geographical sources, including digital resources, to locate unfamiliar places and navigate along a route

December 2021 Farmer Sam's Visit to Year 5 and 6 
UKS2 have been learning where all our food comes from. We were shocked to find that many food items we love are grown overseas and shipped here. Farmer Sam told us ways we can help local farmers by shopping locally. On his visit, he also explained how dairy farms operate and we had a go at churning our own butter. It was delicious on a cracker!
