Geography

Curriculum Overview

At The Greetland Academy we believe that a high-quality Geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Children take part in exciting learning opportunities to develop their Geography knowledge from local to world-wide. This starts with Reception children learning about their home, street & school then broadening to knowledge of their local area before moving onto countries around the world throughout key stage 1 and key stage 2. Through fieldwork, enquiry and investigation, children gain a deep understanding of how their local environment differs to others and how environments impact the way people live.

Whilst Geography and History are two discrete subjects within the National Curriculum; at The Greetland academy our tailored curriculum creates opportunities to deliver these topics on a complimentary level. Each Year Groups delivery begins with Geography and follows with a History link to embed knowledge and improve understanding. For example, The Year One programme of study looks at a comparative study between Greetland and Dorset, then flows onto the History link of Mary Anning who was from Dorset.
