Geography in Action

At Brookland Infant and Nursery school we provide a high-quality geography curriculum which helps our children develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world around them, as well as making sense of their place in it. In ensuring high standards of teaching and learning in geography, we implement a creative curriculum approach which provides opportunities for children to develop their knowledge and skills and make links in their learning to help them to remember more as they progress and move on through the school.


Geography is an integral part of our whole school curriculum; our aim is to develop children's curiosity and fascination about the world around them We want our children to be respectful of our world and the people in it; skills that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

The National Curriculum for Geography aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes
  • understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time
  • are competent in the geographical skills needed to:
  • collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes
  • 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 work and writing.
