The Geography curriculum at Harvey Road Primary School enables children to make comparisons between different cultures and the world we live in. Our curriculum of enquiry based questions and learning ensures that children are able to research different countries, locations and understand both physical and human geography that goes beyond the National Curriculum.

Children discuss the world we live in, relevant environmental issues such as the impact of climate change. Within the geography curriculum is sequential lessons which ensures that all pupils are able to access the curriculum whether it be researching renewable sources of energy or completing a field work study on a local river. Through our varied topics we aim to broaden their understanding of the world and other cultures and enable them to develop map, fieldwork and orienteering skills, providing a foundation of key life skills. In instances where more personalised learning needs to take place, teachers provide opportunities for differentiation, scaffolded learning, a plethora of  resources and ensuring pupils are able to demonstrate their learning through different mediums. For instance, a presentation or field work investigation.
