At Bishop Martin, we want to develop children's knowledge of the world and inspire a curiostiy that runs throughout their school life. We teach children about people and places that are diverse and develop their understanding about how the Earth works.

Following our Inspire curriculum, we carefully shape our geography curriculum to ensure it develops children's curiosity and fascination about the world and it's diverse communities. The ambition is for children to ask questions about what they have learned and deepen their understanding of the Earth's key physical and human processes.

We introduce geographical knowledge, concepts and skils to our children in Key Stage 1, before building and expanding on these in more depthy in Key Stage 2. The development of this knowledge can then be applied to fieldwork, which deepens their understanding of geographical processes. Fieldwork and residentials provide opportunities for pupils to experience alternative landscapes and apply their learning.

Throughout the curriculum, knowledge is built on and developed from their understanding of the local area, human and physical georgraphy and the impact of humanity on our world.

Excitingly, we are also collecting evidence for the Primary Geography Quality Mark. This will showcase the great work we have done over the last few years in developing and sharing our curriculum.

Here is a useful website to look at:

BBC Geography - a wealth of information, including video clips, to support children's understanding of Geography in Key Stage 2.
