Geography

The Geography curriculum at Harvey Road Primary School allows children to make comparisons between different cultures and the world we live in. Our curriculum enables the children to research different countries and understand both physical and human geography. Furthermore, it allows children to discuss the world we live in and environmental issues, their impact and what can be done to help. Through our varied topics we aim to broaden the children’s understanding of the world and other cultures and enable them to develop map, fieldwork and orienteering skills providing a foundation of key life skills.
