At Springwood Junior Academy we teach Geography to inspire children’s curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We aim for this knowledge to remain with them for the rest of their lives. The teaching equips all pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world helps them to deepen their understanding about the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.


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 and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

- communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
