Geography Statement of Intent 
It is our intent that Geography will excite, engage and inspire all pupils to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. We aim to equip learners of all ages with the vocabulary, knowledge and skills needed to describe, question and discuss the world around them, as well as understand their place within it. Our Geography curriculum is designed to equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and physical and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. We believe that Geography should inspire pupils to learn about the ever-changing world around them and develop skills for lifelong learning. 


In Geography the children will learn:

  • Gain curiosity and fascination about the world and its people.
  • Develop knowledge about diverse places, people, resources, and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
  • Develop the Geographical skills required to collect, analyse, and communicate with a range of data.
  • Interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs.
  • Communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
Geography Curriculum Coverage
At St Uny, we follow the National Curriculum to ensure that all children are challenged to learn more and remember more in terms of Geographical subject knowledge and skill.  Please find the link below to explore the National Curriculum objectives for Geography in more depth. There is also a link to access the Skills Progression Framework for Geography coverage from Year 1 to Year 6. Children working within the EYFS follow their own Geography Topics under the Key Area: Knowledge and Understanding of the World- please find the link below for more details.

Supporting Pupils with SEND

To make geography lessons inclusive, teachers need to anticipate what barriers to taking part and learning particular activities, lessons or a series of lessons may pose for pupils with particular SEND and/or disabilities. Teachers plan to reduce these barriers so that all pupils can fully take part in learning. Lessons in geography are sequenced through the use of enquiry questions, challenges and support are differentiated so that all pupils acquire key knowledge when learning about geography. 

Pupil Voice
"I really enjoy Geography, I wish we could do lots more!". 
"We learnt about climate change and then led our own protests - I really enjoyed that". 
"We learnt a lot about the G7 conference in Carbis Bay and protested to share our thoughts".
