Geography at Littleton
Littleton’s geography curriculum intends to deliver learning opportunities that enable all learners to see their connection to the world. This allows our Littleton Learners to leave with a breadth of geographical knowledge that empowers them to understand their role in the world and the responsibilities that come with it. We believe that Geography helps to provoke and answer questions about the natural and human worlds, encouraging children to develop a greater understanding of their world and their place in it.
We want our curriculum to inspire our children to think about how the world’s geography is affected by environmental factors and therefore we want our children to think about the part they can play in looking after our planet. This begins in nursery with their nature journal, through to Reception thinking about ‘What’s outside their classroom door’ and how our actions impact upon that. Year 1 consider their impact upon the weather systems and farming. Year 2 learn about coast lines and why it is important to humans and animals.
At Littleton our values are at the heart of all that we do, ‘Care for Our World’ is a thread that can be seen from nursery to our leavers, the children can talk about ways in which we can care for the world and how we can support others to do the same.
In order to engage the children and for them to see Geography in their everyday lives, we use local resources and places to support their learning; Shepperton Studios, Windsor Castle and St Mary Magdalene Church are just a few of our local landmarks which the children will study and visit to bring their learning to life.
Above all else, our intent is that by the time all children leave Littleton they have been enriched with a fascination about the world around. We want this fascination to inspire them to want to learn more so that they are prepared and equipped for geography at KS2.
