Geography at Eye Primary School
Our Intent: Our Vision for Geography at Eye
At Eye, we consider Geography to be a lens that helps us to explore the physical and human aspects of our world by understanding the Earth’s surface (physical) and appreciating how people affect and are affected by the natural world (human).
How do we teach Geography at Eye?
At Eye Primary School, we teach a full unit of Geography every half term ( in Autumn 2, Spring 2 and Summer 2). There are also cross-curricular links with Geography in other subjects of our curriculum, for example, some aspects of weather may be covered in Science.
How do we assess Geography at Eye?
As Geography is a foundation subject, it is assessed by Teacher Judgement. This means that there are no assessments for the children, other than those set by the class teacher.
During Geography lessons, we regularly complete retrieval practice in the form of Sticky Steps and Sticky Quizzes which test the children on the knowledge taught to them in previous years as well as the lessons they have already covered in their current learning sequence.
