Moorlands Primary School Curriculum
Questioning lies at the heart of the Geography curriculum. Each lesson begins with a key question for pupils to consider, pupils use photographic evidence, texts, maps including digital maps and research to formulate their reasoning. Communication and the principles of Philosophy for Children are taught alongside the subject-specific skills.
Pupils are taught to think like a geographer as they develop their knowledge of the topics covered.
