Through our Geography curriculum, we aim to expand geographical vocabulary, increase our children’s knowledge and curiosity of the wider world and promote high aspirations. We seek to create a life-long love of the subject, through teaching our children about diverse places, people and resources. Through the study of natural and human environments, as well as physical and human processes, we provide our children with knowledge about the world they live in. As they continue on their journey of Geography, we aim to foster a deep understanding of the subject that develops alongside their geographical skills. Our curriculum is designed to provide our children with the subject specific language they need to describe, question and discuss the world, as well as their place in it. We aim to produce well- rounded individuals by providing our children with opportunities to expand their cultural capital and experiences of the world.

We want our children to leave in Y6 knowing:

  • A knowledge of the world and their place in it.
  • A wider vocabulary of geographical terms.
  • How to discover more about the world, through reading, travel or the media.
  • How to develop their geographical skills, such as, evaluation, creativity, problem solving and enquiry.


The geography curriculum has been carefully designed, planned and sequenced using our scheme, Curriculum Maestro, to ensure our topics are progressive, engaging and provide a thematic approach to learning that is mapped to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations. It is delivered through projects, which provide a subject driven, knowledge rich approach that ensures knowledge and skills are revisited to allow for consolidation, and links are made between all aspects of children’s learning. Furthermore, this ensures our children develop a rich cultural capital, which will provide a foundation for future lifelong learning


The impact of our Geography curriculum is measured in a variety of ways: questioning during lesson time, marking children’s written work, listening to child-led discussion, interviewing pupils across the school about their learning, book trawls and using images of children’s practical learning.
