Geography at St Mary's
Through Geography, we aim to inspire curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will continue throughout their lives. We aim to equip children with knowledge about diverse places, people and environments, both close and far away. Our aim is that as our children progress, their growing knowledge about the world will deepen and links between physical and human processes will help them make sense of the world that they live in and how it has changed overtime.

Below is the progression document for geography which outlines the skills, knowledge and vocabulary pupils will be taught in each year group. We deliver Geography through our 'topics' to give the learning context.
Please read our Geography Policy for more details.
Each year at St Mary's, all pupils receive a 'Learning Passport'. This passport contains all of
the skills and knowledge that they will learn that year. It also has all of the skills and
knowledge they have covered in the past. Teachers refer to this passport regularly and pupils
view it frequently to ensure 'sticky knowledge' is developed- this means that pupils are quickly
recalling what they have already learnt so skills and knowledge can be built on each year.
