Can I cover all the national curriculum’s statutory attainment targets by using Kapow Primary’s mixed-age Geography scheme?
Discover how Kapow Primary can assist your mixed-age classroom in meeting the statutory Geography guidelines set out in the national curriculum. This document clearly outlines the attainment targets for KS1 and KS2 pupils, highlighting the relevant unit for each target. The same information is also available on our individual lesson plans.
Kapow Primary’s mixed-age Geography scheme is composed of four strands: Locational knowledge; Place knowledge; Human and physical geography; and Geographical skill and fieldwork. The mixed-age units follow a Cycle A and Cycle B format to ensure progression of skills for children across the age range. This document illustrates how the strands, which are present throughout our scheme of work, link to the national curriculum attainment targets.
This document can help you plan accordingly and avoid gaps in your Geography curriculum coverage if your school changes the units.
