Our approach to Geography
Intent behind curriculum delivery
At Hollymount Primary School, we aim to deliver a high-quality geography education that will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of the world around them and their place in it. Based on Kapow’s Geography Curriculum, pupils become explorers – discovering their identity as global citizens in a varied and ever-changing world. Our curriculum has a strong focus on developing both geographical skills and knowledge. Children will become critical thinkers with the ability to ask perceptive questions and explain and analyse evidence. Children will develop fieldwork skills which grow and mature each year. Through focused and clear learning objectives in each lesson, children will have a growing understanding of geographical terms and be able to use the vocabulary confidently. Additionally, children will have a chance to gain a deep interest and knowledge of their unique locality and how it differs from other areas of the world.
