Miss Sophie Edney
Class Teacher and Geography Lead
Geography subject leader at Bishop Bronescombe School.
At Bishop Bronescombe, Geography will be implemented through teaching that provides children with the foundations of the theory of our world and its development, as well as opportunities for independent research and discovery. In KS1, the learning will be conducted through a predominantly skills-based curriculum, focusing on map exploration and the children’s independent interests, linking this to broad topic areas where possible. In KS2, the teaching will explore the subject through questioning that will encourage the children to think more deeply about the world in which they live. They will also be given opportunities through research and outdoor, collaborative learning to further increase their knowledge base and fascination of their world. The subject will be taught through a combination of explicit teaching, research and open-ended investigations as well as cross-curricular learning alongside other subjects, which will allow the children to recall and consolidate key areas of their learning.
