Subject Lead: Miss Holly McGowan 

Our Geography curriculum is designed to develop children’s curiosity and fascination about the world and the people that are surrounding them. We strive to ensure that all lessons are knowledge rich and promote independent learning.  


Our children will investigate a range of places – from both Britain and the wider world – to help develop their knowledge and understanding of the Earth’s physical and human processes.  At SPIS, we are committed to providing our children with opportunities to investigate their local area, so they can have a deeper understanding of who they are, where they live and what makes our area so unique and special. Within lessons, children use a wide variety of different skills such as; geographical enquiry, directions and locations, and the use and drawing of maps which help to develop their geographical knowledge. 


How we teach Geography 

Our aim in Geography is to give our pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding of the world around them. As children move throughout the school, they will use and build upon their skill sets. Our lessons are enriched with a range of different outdoor learning opportunities, with children going on trips to and carrying out geographical surveys around our local area.  Within our lessons we actively make links to the wider world. Children are immersed in the key vocabulary and are aware of the skills that they are learning. Our lessons involve cold tasks where children think about what they already know about the topic and hot tasks that are completed at the end of the lesson where children are able to assess their own progress. Each geography lesson begins with a ‘key question’ which encourages the children to think about the answer before the learning begins and children will be able to answer this question by the end of the lesson.
