St. Helen's Primary School



In Geography pupils are taught a curriculum which is both knowledge and skills based. We aim to develop pupils understanding of the area in which we live and the wilder world.

Through our bespoke curriculum pupils will explore and develop their knowledge and understanding of the physical and human aspects which shape and affect the environment, for example towns, countries, rivers, mountain ranges.

Each year pupils will be taught and will develop their geographical skills; using maps and atlases to locate places, using positional language, compass points and grid references to describe locations.

Pupils will get the opportunity to explore different environments through different medias, such as maps, atlases, reference books, photographs and the internet.

Pupils will be expected to apply their knowledge from other areas of the curriculum (English, Maths and Computing) to record and communicate their findings.
