Our curriculum intent for Geography. 


As a valued part of the curriculum, Geography is taught as a discrete subject and where appropriate cross curricular links are made. We aim to make learning Geography  both meaningful and memorable.  The intent of our curriculum is to inspire a curiosity and fascination about the world.  The curriculum is designed to allow children to deepen their knowledge about diverse places, people and resources as well as natural and human environments.  Our aim is to help our children develop into curious and considerate global citizens.


Implementation of the Geography Curriculum at Holy Trinity


The Curriculum is largely focused around 4 key areas:

  • Locational Knowledge
  • Place Knowledge
  • Human and Physical Geography
  • Geographical Skills and Fieldwork

We aim to develop meaningful links across curriculum subjects for pupils to be able to apply and practice their geographical skills.  These lessons include a range of different activities allowing the children to develop a deep contextual knowledge of significant places and events; an understanding of key human and physical geographical features of the world; and a range of geographical skills which increase over time.  These lessons may include investigations and exploratory work, map reading and construction, direct teaching and practical fieldwork.

In support of the above, children have access to a range of wider curriculum opportunities to support their learning.  This may include trips and visits, workshops, clubs, roles of responsibility and residential visits in the later years.  These all combine to enable pupils to identify as geographers within real life contexts and experience life as global citizens.


The Impact of the Geography Curriculum at Holy Trinity

In offering our children an experience where they can be curious, ask questions and explore, and teaching them the skills to contribute effectively within our school, the community and the wider world, we have given them the confidence they need to prepare them for becoming valued and considerate global citizens.
