Ryarsh Primary School


The aim of our Geography curriculum is to inspire pupils with a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Teaching should equip pupils with 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.

As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.

Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.

One Page Summary

Curriculum Progression Document

Our curriculum progression document is based on our overall curriculum intent statement and details the powerful geographical knowledge and skills that we aim to teach our children, and the sequence in which they are taught. 

The knowledge and skills stated are based on key geographical concepts that we aim to teach our children from when they begin school in reception to when they leave school at the end of year 6. These geographical concepts are revisited and 'spiral' over time so that children form a deep understanding within and between various geography units. 

As part of our ongoing evaluations, our curriculum progression documents are continuously strengthened. Below is a copy of our most recent version. They will be updated on our website periodically.
