Our intent is that children at Larkfield Primary School develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world and their place in it. Children will learn about the physical world and the human impact we can have on it. They will look at their local environment, exploring the Sefton Coast and understand the importance of preserving it. We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives, as well as; to promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
In order to enhance long-term learning, we have ensured that the areas covered are sequenced in a way that ties in with the Larkfield Curriculum as a whole. Children will be able to make links between the history and geography of different areas and regions of the world and how one has impacted on the other.
Progress is demonstrated across five key areas: Locational knowledge, place knowledge, human and physical geography and geographical skills and fieldwork. By teaching these skills through a combination of intensive map work, in depth studies of different regions and putting our skills into practice in the local environment, we expect our children to leave Larkfield with a deep understanding of the world around them and a desire to discover more.
