Geography

Our Geography curriculum ensures that children understand the four main concepts of Geography: distribution, interaction, location and place. 

Our curriculum gives the children the opportunity to work as enquiring geographers. All units have a question as their title and lessons focus on exploring an ancillary question. 

National Curriculum

Key Stage 1:

Pupils should develop knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality.
They should understand basic subject-specific vocabulary relating to human and physical geography and begin to use geographical skills, including first-hand observation, to enhance their locational awareness.

Key Stage 2:

Pupils should extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the local area to include the United Kingdom and Europe, North and South America. This will include the location and characteristics of a range of the world’s most significant human and physical features.
They should develop their use of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills to enhance their locational and place knowledge.
