At Maidwell Primary School we have a two-year rolling programme of topics at Key Stage 1 and four year rolling programme of topics at Key Stage 2.
As in other subject areas, the language of Geography is key and as such assessments of vocabulary using a Never Heard the Word Grid is made at the outset of each unit.
To reinforce reading fluency and comprehension skills, children regularly read information texts pertaining to the particular geographic knowledge being taught.
Cross Curricular Writing
There are many opportunities over the course of the year or the children to practise the skills taught through the Talk for Writing process in their Geography work.
