Geography is essentially about understanding the world we live in. It helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world.  Here at Asquith Primary School, the teaching of geography nurtures the creativity, curiosity and independence of the pupils by allowing them to interpret and reflect on the world they live in. Geography enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas. Geography is an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. We strive to educate our pupils for effective membership and leadership in a global political, social and economic community by providing an understanding of major world cultures. 



All learning will start by revisiting prior knowledge - this will support children to recall previous learning and make connections. Through our geography curriculum children have opportunities to investigate and interpret a range of geographical locations in Britain and across the wider world. We encourage children to become geographers through collecting, analysing and communicating through discussion our findings. Each unit of geography is used as the theme (driver) for the whole of a half term, three times throughout the academic year. This enables cross-curricular links within the children’s learning. Learning will be supported through the use of a carefully planned spiral curriculum, knowledge organisers, a variety of resources as well as experiences to enhance learning for the children.
