Geography has a number of positive outcomes for pupils at Smarden. It:
The three aspects of pupils’ achievements in geography:
• Contextual world knowledge of locations, places and geographical features.
• Understanding of the conditions, processes and interactions that explain features and distributions, patterns and changes over time and space.
• Competence in geographical enquiry, the application of skills in observing, collecting, analysing, mapping and communicating geographical information.
What does progress in these three aspects of achievement look like?
• Demonstrating greater fluency with world knowledge by drawing on increasing breadth and depth of content and contexts.
• Extending from the familiar and concrete to the unfamiliar and abstract.
• Making greater sense of the world by organising and connecting information and ideas about people, places, processes and environments.
• Working with more complex information about the world, including the relevance of people’s attitudes, values and beliefs.
• Increasing the range and accuracy of investigative skills, and advancing their ability to select and apply these with increasing independence to geographical enquiry
