Being proud of Geography at The Avenue

Everyone at the Avenue both children and teachers are not only experiencing Geography within lessons, but throughout the whole school.

  • Displays are used as a key talking point throughout teaching and for children to proudly display their work as well as communicate it with others.
  • Know it boards are used for key Geographical vocabulary.
  • Curriculum big books promote a yearly overview of teaching for each year group including objectives, pictures, children’s work and children’s voice.

How do we approach Geography at The Avenue?

Geography at the Avenue Primary school provides all children with a means of exploring, appreciating and understanding the world in which we live and how it has evolved. The teaching of Geography motivates our children to find out about the world around them and to recognise the importance of sustainable development. Throughout the academic year, children learn about their local area and can compare this with other regions of the United Kingdom and the rest of the world. Geography is rooted within a topic-lead approach to teaching which widens the opportunity for cross-curricular links within other foundation subjects.

Children at the Avenue Primary will develop their location knowledge, place knowledge, human and physical geography and geographical skills and fieldwork all underpinned by key geographical skills including using and drawing maps as well as understanding these within direction and location that they will develop and progress throughout school.

Celebrating our community and locality

As well as promoting an understanding for the world we live in during Geography focused topic lessons, the Avenue Primary also provides the children with a broader understanding of locality and the area they live within the world. Each year group celebrates this by focussing on an area of locality within or around Middlesbrough. Therefore, children at the Avenue will leave school with a clear and confident understanding of their own community and locality.
