At Mill Hill, we provide an exciting and thought provoking Geography curriculum. We aim to WOW, engage and encourage children to ask questions, lead their own learning and explore ways to develop their geography knowledge and skills.
The curriculum will allow children to use and develop their map skills as well as develop a curiosity about the world and people around them. Geography at Mill Hill will develop the children’s knowledge of the local community where they live and celebrate what makes them unique and special.
Children will have access to a multitude of activities such as, using and exploring artefacts, fieldwork and hands on experience in careers linked to humanities. We aim to stimulate, immerse and give children ‘BIG Dreams’ for their adult life.
Geography is part of our 3D curriculum and therefore has links across other subjects. From our whole school curriculum, we have unit overviews for geography, which give the basis of the unit sequence, objectives, concepts and vocabulary. To assess the children’s knowledge and the content of our curriculum, we use cumulative quizzes throughout the unit. See below for an example of a cumulative quiz and a unit overview.
