Curriculum

Geography at Northfield Manor Primary Academy

Geography is taught through our Learning Challenges which have geographical themes and links within them.

Geography is the study of the earth’s surface and of its climate, people and products.

Children use fieldwork, first-hand experience and secondary sources to find out about a range of places and environments, including their own locality, a contrasting area in the UK and a different locality in another country. Children explore views and opinions about local and global issues including sustainability, climate change, poverty, resource use and recycling.

Sources used to explore the skills of geography include:

Maps

Globes

Charts

Film

Books

Internet
