Geography Summer Challenge
 
As the Summer holidays approach, it is a perfect opportunity for children to experience geography in the real world due to many people going away and visiting new countries, cities and places. We would love children to take a picture of themselves in a place they have visited during the 6 weeks, whether it is in this country or abroad, so we can place them on a map to show all the different places we have visited from Scargill. Please write the name of the location on the back of the photo ad  hand it in during the first week back at school (W/B 5th September 2022).
 
Alongside this, we have created a bingo sheet of physical and human features for children to spot on their adventures that us attached below. We can’t wait to see what amazing places you end up exploring!
 

Curriculum Intent for Geography

At Scargill C of E Primary School, we believe that Geography helps to provoke and answer questions about the natural and human aspects of our wonderful world. Children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. The enquiry based Geography curriculum at Scargill helps children develop a range of investigation and problem-solving skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can be used to promote children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

The curriculum is designed to promote children’s interest and understanding about diverse people, places, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.

We aim and seek to inspire curiosity, ignite fascination and foster passion in children about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives, equipping them with a strong foundational basis of knowledge and skills that can be built upon as they embark upon further education and beyond.

Ultimately, at Scargill, we want and intend our geographers to be EPIC:

Explorers and Enquirers

Passionate and Probing

Inspired and Inquisitive

Creative and Curious
