"Pupils’ success in writing is shared and celebrated, and pupils keenly show off their work"

Geography is the study of our world - of the shape and features of the Earth’s surface and how we as humans interact with our environment.

Through Geography children will be taught about diverse places, people, resources, natural and human environments, sparking curiosity in the world around them.

Geography will be taught using an enquiry based approach where children will investigate and explore big questions about topics, places, themes and issues - questions that are relevant if you are going to live to see the next century.

The key topics covered within Geography are Locational Knowledge, Place Knowledge, Human and Physical Geography, alongside Geographical Skills and Fieldwork.
