The Winchcombe School



At The Winchcombe School we teach Geography through a topic based approach built around the following nine Big Ideas from the Cornerstones Curriculum; Place, Comparison, Processes, Nature, Human Kind, Investigation, Materials, Significance and Change. This provides a means of exploring, appreciating and understanding the world in which we live and how it is evolved through the following aspects; World. UK, Location, Position, Maps, Comparing and Contrasting, Climate and weather, Physical Processes, Physical Features, Environment, Human Feature and Landmarks, Settlements and Land Use. Geographical Resources, Data Analysis, Fieldwork, Natural and Man-Made Materials, Significant Places and Geographical Change.  Wherever possible, we aim to build upon a child’s prior knowledge, developing geographical skills, knowledge and key technical vocabulary.
