Shadsworth Infant SchoolLearning, Sharing and Caring


Welcome toShadsworth Infant SchoolLearning, Sharing and Caring




Our geography curriculum is taught through topics which aim to inspire our learner’s curiosity about the world they live in and their place within it. Children will learn about their local environment as well as the wider world. They will develop geographical knowledge, enquiry skills and the ability to use a range of tools such as maps, atlases and globes. Our children will learn to recognise human and physical features that are unique to a place, country or continent. At Shadsworth Infant School we want our children to enjoy, value and respect their natural world. 




Geography at Shadsworth Infant School is assessed using the following;

  •  informal judgements by staff during lessons
  • immediate next steps provided via verbal feedback
  • pupil and peer assessments
  • formal skills and assessment checklists


Come the end of each geography unit/ topic, teachers make a summary judgement about the work each pupil has completed in relation to the success criteria. The geography subject leader monitors class assessment and analyses data on a termly basis.
