Geography

Our geography curriculum provides children with a relevant, coherent and progressive knowledge of the world. We intend to offer a balanced view of the world, addressing misconceptions and negative stereotypes. Throughout their time with us, children will develop an ability to find their place in the world by exploring geographical concepts:

  • Location and Place - the location of the world's continents, countries and places, and the key physical and human characteristics of each
  • Geographical Scale - considering local, national and global scale and understanding how causes and effects occur at all scales
  • Making Connections - how are the human and physical worksl connected? How are different locations connected at different scales?

We give children a grounding in core disciplinary knowledge, and the ability to approach challenging, geographically-valid questions. Geographical enquiry skills are sequenced across the year groups to build on mathematical or scientific knowledge and fieldwork gives pupils the opportunity to practice or reinforce their knowledge.
