We develop children’s knowledge of the relationships between the human and physical worlds so that they can take responsible actions, understanding the global and local impact they will have on their futures.
A guiding principle of CUSP Geography is that each study draws upon prior learning. For example, in the EYFS, pupils may learn about People, Culture and Communities or The Natural World through daily activities and exploring their locality and immediate environment. This is revisited so that new content in Year 1 can be put into a known location and make it easier to process. This means pupils make conscious connections and think hard, using what they know. CUSP Geography equips pupils to become ‘more expert’ with each study and grow an ever broadening and coherent mental model of the subject. Specific and associated geographical vocabulary is planned sequentially and cumulatively from Y1 to Y6.
