Our curriculum extends children’s knowledge beyond the local area to include the United Kingdom [Birmingham], Europe [the Rhine and Mediterranean], North and South America [Jamaica, California, Amazon] and Africa [Ethiopia]. This will comprise of the location and characteristics of a range of the world’s most significant human [population, tourism, migration, settlements] and physical features [rivers, mountains, volcanoes, rainforests].

Children will engage in geographical reasoning about change [including past, present, and future], diversity across space and interaction between places, phenomena, and processes in the world. They will learn to interpret and communicate geographical data, by analysing, interpreting, and comparing. This will be done with a range of sources, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and digital technology. We use the Opening Worlds Scheme of Work, making cross curricular links with history.

Our children will be able to talk knowledgeably about the world in which they live - its diverse places, people, resources, and natural and human environments. They will demonstrate a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.
