Our All Saints family shall ARISE and shine for the light of The Lord is upon us


Subject Leader: Mrs Kotamo (Year 1 Class Teacher)


Welcome to the Geography subject page! 



As part of our geography intent at All Saints C of E Primary, we aim to be eco-ambassadors, looking after our school grounds and embodying our environmental values. The children engage in recycling, litter-picking, switching lights and taps off and representing our school's goal to becoming more eco-aware.




Geography forms part of our foundation subjects within our curriculum. We strive to create a culture that is inclusive, engaging, and relevant to all pupils by delivering high-quality teaching, an ambitious, progressively sequenced, broad and balanced curriculum and opportunities for students to be curious about the world around them. Thus, students should be able to acquire a knowledge and understanding of geography that enables them to achieve their best.


We provide a safe and supportive environment for all children to flourish in a range of different activities to promote their emotional, spiritual, social and moral development. We also aim to increase children’s awareness of other cultures and subsequently teach a respect and understanding of what it means to be a positive citizen in a multicultural country.


Within geography, children will become proficient at using geographical skills such as how to use, draw and interpret world maps or atlases. Furthermore, children will be provided with the opportunities to learn about and understand the environmental issues facing them at a local, regional and global level. Consequently, we hope to encourage a commitment to a sustainable future within the students and an appreciation of what 'global citizenship' means. Students will develop enquiry, problem solving, ICT and investigational skills that underpin geographical study and will learn how to present their conclusions in the most appropriate way.


Significantly, we encourage our children to transfer our school values, Achieve, Respect, Include, Support and Enjoy, into all of our learning activities to create a positive attitude towards learning and to their peers. Similarly, our core concept of the British values and our responsibilities to the wider community are further instilled into our students throughout our geography curriculum.



We provide challenging and enjoyable learning through our fantastic, immersive Cornerstones Curriculum that is designed and adapted to meet the needs of all pupils at the school. A strong emphasis is placed on personal development, positive interactions and an optimistic mindset across all geography lessons to ensure that all children enjoy learning and attain well. Geography is taught throughout a series of topics across year groups following the national curriculum guidance to ensure a broad and balanced coverage of all objectives.


Every Geography lesson taught within school is assessed rigorously to monitor children’s progression. All lessons will contain an accessible challenge for the children to complete to extend and expand upon their main learning. Furthermore, children will have the chance to demonstrate what they have learnt within their lesson with an 'Assessment For Learning' task at the end of their work. Holiday homework will include activities that encourage engagement with the local area and the world beyond.



We ensure that our geography curriculum is progressive, accessible, and memorable to enable children to develop fundamental geographical skills that they can apply to a range of contexts. Our exciting geography curriculum encourages good progress and attainment in line with or above other children nationally. Geography invites children to learn about the world around them and entices their curiosity in places, cultures and people that fosters a respect for diversity and a supportiveness and inclusiveness of others. Our happy, caring and confident students will be resilient and ready for any challenges.

Additionally, our children support the local community and immerse themselves into fascinating enquiry-based fieldwork through working around and in the school grounds. Consequently, this builds their cultural capital and embeds an understanding of their responsibilities towards becoming well-rounded individuals in twenty-first century Britain.

By the end of Key Stage 2, we aim for all students to leave with vital geographical skills that will aid their future aspirations.




How can you support your children in Geography?

  • Watch current affair programmes such as Newsround - 
  • Go and explore the landscapes around you as a family – it doesn’t matter if you live in an urban environment or a rural one.
  • A holiday can also turn into a learning experience for children – talk about the weather, the coastline, the differences between coast and the mainland, pick up shells, discuss how fossils might have formed there.
  • If your child is older, they could keep a journal of their holidays or conduct their own experiments.
  • If you are able to, buy a globe or atlas of the world. Alternatively, download Google Maps and allow your child to explore new locations with you.
  • Talk to your child about the world, tell them about different countries you would like to visit / have visited and discuss capital cities.
  • Look at travel magazines or TV programmes about other countries.
