‘It is the essential knowledge that pupils need to be educated citizens, introducing them to the best that has been thought and said and helping to engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.’
Ofsted School Inspection Handbook 2019
Cultural Capital at Randlay Primary School is something we are passionate about throughout all subjects. Geography is a topic that lends itself well to developing cultural capital. We are excited about delivering knowledge and making educated citizens who learn from the events, people and ideas we study.
We aim to provide high quality geographical trips and/or visitors during the pupils time at Randlay, enabling our pupils to gain a wider context to their unit of study. Children are then able to apply their knowledge to a more ‘concrete’ experience and bring their learning to life.
Carefully sequenced geographical vocabulary ensures that our children move up through our school with a vocabulary basis that can be applied to a new topic and support their geographical understanding.
