Welcome to the Geography page.
Geography at Highfield is taught through the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), which focuses on children's knowledge, skills and understanding. The exciting units which have been chosen to deliver our new curriculum, promote a progressive range of skills and knowledge that are taught year on year.
We believe a high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Geography, delivered through the IPC, will aim to equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
As pupils progress throughout the Junior School, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills help provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
