Crossley Fields


Skills Progression


Through a carefully designed programme of study, by the time a child leaves Crossley Fields, we would hope that they have a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Learning about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments both close to home and wider afield, will help to harbour this curiosity and fascination beyond their immediate surrounding. They should also have an understanding of the impact that humans can have on the world around us, and how landscapes and environments have formed over time.  

Key approaches we will use to develop this are; 

Developing contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes. 

Understanding the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time. 

Key skills we would expect the children to exhibit are the ability to; 

Collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes. 

Interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes and aerial photographs.  

Communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
