At Glemsford Primary Academy we have received support from Unity Schools Partnership’s Primary Adviser, Alex Bedford, to design our own Knowledge Organisers to deliver an in-depth and varied curriculum throughout the school. Knowledge organisers provide children with important knowledge and the understanding of key words within the subjects of science, geography and history.
We aim to ensure that all pupils:
Develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes
Understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time
Are competent in the geographical skills needed to:
Collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes
Interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
Communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
Please view the attached Curriculum Maps to gain further insight into the National Curriculum Expectations and topics taught throughout the academic year in this subject.
