At Moorcroft Wood Primary School, children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. The geography curriculum at Moorcroft Wood enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can and are used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.


Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. We aim to inspire a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives; to promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.


The curriculum is designed to develop knowledge and skills that are progressive, as well as transferable, throughout their time at Moorcroft Wood and also to their further education and beyond.


We provide an engaging and informative Geography curriculum that gives children a rich and varied knowledge of the world. All of our children will learn about a range of locations and habitats both close to home and outside of the UK. Children will use case studies based around their topics to gain key geographic skills such as map reading skills and directional knowledge. Children will also be aware of both human and physical characteristics a range of locations and are encouraged to build their curiosity of both their local area and worldwide locations.


In Early Years, the children learn Geography through the subject Understanding the World. The children access Geography through their play and through adult led activities for a range of topics across the year, as well as in weekly circle time discussions.
