At Brooklands Primary School we aim for our pupils to have an extensive base of geographical knowledge and vocabulary. Geography is taught through a variety of engaging enquiry questions following the ‘Primary Connected Geography’ scheme. This enquiry-based approach teaches important subject knowledge whilst allowing opportunities for pupils to master key subject skills and challenging outcomes. The questions seek to identify the most relevant and meaningful aspects of the subject content of the Geography National curriculum with an emphasis on subject rigour and challenge.
Through investigating smaller ancillary questions in each lesson, the children are able to deepen their knowledge and skills. During the enquiries, pupils have opportunities through the application and analysis of a wide range of geographical skills and resources to achieve outcome focussed objectives.
