Our Geography Curriculum 

At Sacred Heart, we aim for a high quality geography curriculum which inspires pupils' curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We want children to enjoy and love learning about geography by gaining knowledge and skills, not just through experiences in the classroom, but also with the use of fieldwork and educational visits.

To support us in the delivery of Geography we use Rising Stars Geography which gives us the basis for a whole school approach to Geography. Gradually building up knowledge and skills as the children progress through school. 

Key knowledge is linked to other subject areas and explored thoroughly through our class and whole school themes. These can be explored in our Curriculum Plans.

Knowledge Organisers 

 We use knowledge organisers to help the children remember important vocabulary and information.  You can use these to help your child at home.
