At Our Lady Mother of the Saviour, our children begin to learn about their locality; carefully exploring human and physical geographical features. Children then build upon their knowledge by comparing their life in this locality to other parts of the United Kingdom and the rest of the world. As children grow and move through school, they will build upon their knowledge and deepen their understanding by considering the interactions between the human and physical forms and processes. Geography teaching motivates children to find out about the human and physical world and enables them to recognise the importance of care and responsibility for the quality of the natural and human environment in a changing world.

What we want children to know is clearly mapped out in our curriculum grids, we believe it is important to give our children lots of well-connected knowledge as it’s the connection between facts that gives understanding and leads to the development of crucial skills such as problem solving and critical thinking. Intelligent repetition of content is built in to our curriculum as we recognise that children need to be able to retrieve core knowledge quickly if they are to use it efficiently.
