At FPPF we value Geography and want to inspire in our pupils a curiosity, passion and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our Geography curriculum aims 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, their growing knowledge about the world will help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.

Curriculum Overview & Big Questions
We use Big Questions to test how accurately the children acquire the key sticky knowledge and/or skills appropriate to the topic. These questions are answered in a variety of ways, through verbal responses, to written tasks to more creative work.
Children understand the question at the start of the topic so they can link their learning to the bigger picture.
Curriculum Sticky Knowledge
Sticky Knowledge is the key knowledge that we have chosen for the children to know after each topic. This knowledge is built upon, brought back into the working memory or recapped (retention & retrieval work) through the subsequent topics, years and even through different subjects. The aim is to retain this key knowledge by making a change to the child's long term memory.
Within all subjects, the expanse of knowledge is vast. We have chosen the key sticky knowledge that we feel would benefit the children through their KS1 journey and to help them understand and enjoy the subject area ready for KS2.
