Geography Statement of Intent

As Geographers the children will be inspired and curious about the World in which they live. The content of the Geography curriculum should provide our children with knowledge about the diverse people, places, resources and natural and human environments. Alongside this, a deep and concise understanding of the Earth’s physical and human processes. As the children progress through the school, their depth of understanding should develop, providing them with the skills required when learning about local, national and global aspects of geography. Children will investigate and make enquiries about their local area of Northwich and Cheshire, exploring what makes our locality unique, learning about their heritage and allowing them to develop a strong sense of self. As they progress through the curriculum they will build up an extensive bank of geographical vocabulary alongside their geographical knowledge and skills.

Curriculum Content

Each unit taught across school is underpinned by a knowledge organiser, designed to focus the children's learning, making it both purposeful and meaningful, building upon prior learning through a series of 'golden threads.' These are key geographical skills which will progress as the children move through the school providing them with the necessary knowledge and skill base to be successful geographers. 

Trips and Visits

Throughout their school careers, children are provided with a wealth of enrichment opportunities which endeavour to consolidate and deepen their existing geographical learning from the classroom. These opportunities inspire and ignite the childrens natural curiosity for this wonderful subject and the World in which they live. 


Our Wonderful Creations

We believe that creative and quality pieces of work require time and allow the children to express themselves fully. We create fewer pieces, valuing quality over quantity when it comes to the children's geographical learning. This wonderful work can be seen in school through the children's 'Discovery Books' and at the top of this page. Enjoy!
