At New Cangle, we support all children to develop skills, knowledge, curiosity and a depth of understanding in geography.
We provide a geography curriculum based around the Cornerstones Curriculum. For more details about the Cornerstones Curriculum, please see Curriculum
In school, we have a range of resources to support teaching and learning of geography including: local area maps, world maps, atlases, globes, compasses, aerial photographs, plan perspectives, Ordnance Survey maps and digital technologies.
To support their learning in geography, children across the school visit local places and travel further afield on educational visits. This provides opportunities for the children to develop their fieldwork skills as well as gain real-world experiences.
More details of our geography curriculum can be found in the document: Geography Curriculum Map 2020-2021
