Geography

 
Geography learning and teaching at Dilton Marsh follows an enquiry-based approach teaching essential subject knowledge whilst emphasising the importance of allowing enough time and opportunity for pupils to master key subject skills and challenging outcomes through investigating focussed content at greater depth.  
Humanities (Geography and History) are taught over alternate terms throughout the year to ensure sufficient time to delve deeper into a Key Question for the term. Working as Geographers, children answer Ancillary Questions to enable them to answer the Key Question using a range of high quality resources.
Our Geography curriculum places emphasis on the progression of critical thinking skills and oracy with pupils increasing their ability to confidently and appropriately use subject vocabulary, geographical terms and language balanced with developing increasing knowledge and mastery of understanding of subject content and concepts. We aim to offer every child the opportunity to experience geography first-hand through a range of visitors, trips and local experiences.
