Geography

A Yattendon geographer ...

has an excellent knowledge of where places are, what they are like and how they are interdependent and interconnected. They use established geographical knowledge and vocabulary. They reach clear conclusions and develop a reasoned argument to explain findings. They have a passion for and commitment to the subject, and a genuine sense of curiosity to find out about the world and the people who live there.

The national curriculum for geography aims to ensure that all pupils:

develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes

 understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time

 are competent in the geographical skills needed to:

 collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes

 interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

 communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
