Sturton by Stow Primary School


Our Geography curriculum is structured so that there is opportunity for repetition and consolidation of key concepts. We follow a two year rolling programme with planned progression meaning children are increasingly challenged as they move through the school.  We use low stakes testing throughout a topic to aid children’s recall and learning and to demonstrate progress and understanding. We also use Knowledge Organisers which are sent home to help children learn the important facts and vocabulary for the termly topic; the children then use these knowledge organisers to support their learning through bi-weekly low stake quizzes via their Microsoft Teams accounts, to enable class teacher to monitor progress. At SBS we teach Geography in 3 out of 6 of our terms.  Where possible, we ensure that Geography is linked to our termly class theme and often links to our class texts so that children are able to see a real purpose to their learning and can make connections in their knowledge as well as transfer skills between subjects such as English, Art and Music.
