Years 1-6 National Curriculum: Geography

Curriculum design for Geography:

The design of our Geography curriculum is supported by Cornerstones. As the children progress through the school, we teach a layering of knowledge and skills for Geography, mainly through cross-curricular topics. Geography is taught in isolation but wherever appropriate it is linked to other areas of the curriculum, giving children the opportunities to develop and reinforce knowledge and skills already established in context.
