"Geography is the subject which holds the key to our future"

Michael Palin

The primary geography national curriculum in the UK mirrors the goals of its history counterpart, focusing on deepening students' understanding of the world and their place within it. Through engaging topics taught throughout the year, children explore diverse places and environments, with teachers carefully planning each topic to ensure progressive learning.


Fieldwork skills are emphasised, providing students with opportunities to investigate their local area firsthand and compare geographical features and processes. Vocabulary acquisition is also prioritised, with key terms introduced at the outset of each topic to facilitate comprehension.


Utilising the local area as a learning resource enhances student engagement, with outdoor experiences providing real-world contexts for geographical concepts. Overall, the curriculum aims to inspire curiosity about the world while equipping students with the skills and knowledge to understand diverse geographical landscapes and become engaged global citizens.
