Geography

Keeping in line with the National curriculum, children at Brookfield study a range of local, British, European and world geography. Our Brookfield curriculum is tailored to represent the backgrounds of our children and so we choose countries to study based on the heritage of our pupils. This includes a unit on Somalia in year 1 and Bangladesh in year 3.

Our aim is to inspire our students to develop a fascination with the world around them, where they come from, other cultures and caring for our planet. We achieve this by using a hands on approach, including fieldwork, collecting data, outdoor learning and research.

Students work towards their ‘beautiful work’ for each unit. This is added to their Geography Portfolio which travels with them from year 1 to year 6. In keeping a portfolio of work, students can build on prior learning and make stronger links between previously taught units. This enables our pupils to become confident and competent geographers.
