At Rowledge C of E Primary School we believe that Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. The geography curriculum at Rowledge 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. 

The curriculum champion for Geography is Mrs Kathryn Fasham.  To find out more about how Rowledge delivers this subject please contact her using the following email address: k.fasham@rowledge.hants.sch.uk


Our overview for the planning and delivery of Geography at Rowledge is led by the statutory, National Curriculum guidance and the relevant programmes of study for each yeargroup.


We have aligned a progression of skills and knowledge with the programmes of study for each year group. 

The documents below outline this progression and are used when assessing the ongoing progress of pupils.


We regularly conference pupils to gain an awareness of their attitudes to a range of curriculum subjects.  Below is a sample of thoughts from a range of pupils about how they feel about the Geography curriculum at Rowledge.


"We go into the forest and learn about the local area.  I went in Year R and Year 1!"


"I like learning about different countries.  It is fun when you get to use maps and understand where different places.

We learnt about Tanzania last year and I learnt so many facts!"


"It helps you to learn to understand more about different parts of the world and different cultuies.

Recently we have used map work to help us with our topic.  It has helped me to understand what happened in the Great War and it has improved my writing."


Below are our Year Group overviews which provide a sense of the curriculum experience children will recieve in each year group.  We recognise that each cohort are individuals and promote flexibility in themes to meet the required subject objectives.  You can see the range of concepts taught across the school by reviewing these documents.
