At Maynards Green we believe that all children should have access to a geography curriculum that sparks curiosity and fascination. Our aim is to equip the pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments both locally and globally. 


  • Develop a coherent knowledge of the location of significant places across the globe.
  • Acquire an understanding of the key physical and human geographical features of the world. 
  • Collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through fieldwork. 
  • Develop an understanding of how to interpret a range of sources of geographical information. 
  • Develop a range of skills to communicate geographical information, such as maps. 


We will achieve this through: 

  • The use of carefully selected sources and books.
  • Giving opportunities to learn about locational and place knowledge.
  • Using the local area and further afield to investigate the manmade and natural world by first-hand experience. 
  • Providing good quality and up-to–date key resources such as maps, atlases, globes and other online or electronic resources to enable the pupils to have an in-depth locational and place knowledge. 
  • Planning opportunities across Key stages for the children to practice their geographical skills and fieldwork.  


  • KS1 - Evidence in books show their clear understanding of the world.
  • High expectations of the children’s skills in communicating geographical information. (especially by the end of key stage 2)
  • KS2 - Evidence in books highlighting the children’s ability to collect, analyse and communicate using a range of data.
