Intent

At Mottram C of E Primary School, we aim to promote a relevant curriculum which will support the children in life.

In EYFS geography comes under the umbrella of ‘Understanding the World’.

In KS1 and 2 geography will be taught via a ‘Cornerstones Topic’, meaning that lessons are as creative and as real as possible. Alongside these topics the children are accumulating progressive map reading skills and a knowledge of the wider world e.g. capital cities, main rivers, mountain ranges. Where possible we strive to adapt the curriculum utilising local resources.
