Grow in Faith and Love

"In knowing Jesus, we seek to fulfil our God-given potential. We value every person as we look beyond ourselves in a spirit of charity, forgiveness and honesty"



The geography curriculum enables children to develop their geographical enquiry skills, their knowledge and understanding of places, their knowledge and understanding of patterns and processes, as well as their knowledge and understanding of environmental change and sustainable development. Children will undertake a variety of geographical studies including local, regional and national studies and fieldwork investigations wherever possible. Children are taught to

  • Locate and name countries, counties and cities identifying physical and human features. 
  • Locate places on a map of the UK, Europe and world using grid references and symbols and keys.
  • Understand key vocabulary and begin to spell these
  • Collect data about the locality and use the data to produce graphs/bar chart
  • Carry out local fieldwork studies, record and present findings and conclusions in a range of ways.
