Welcome to our Geography page!

I am Mrs Hemingway and I am the Geography Leader in school.
I love teaching Geography as it helps us to make sense of the world around us, takes us to places we may never have been before, and gives us an insight into how we can help the world to make it a better place.

Intent - Why is Geography important for our children?

Our aim is to make the teaching and learning of Geography meaningful, memorable and motivating. Thought and consideration has gone into the design of our Geography curriculum in order to ensure it stimulates the enthusiasm, imagination and critical thinking of our children so that they are equipped to understand the world around them and make their own way within in.


Geography at Dane Royd will provoke in our children an inquisitive fascination about the local and wider world and its people, places and environments that will develop with them as they entre the wider world. We want our children to grow up to be thoughtful, considerate and innovative global citizens that can play an active role in changing the future of the world around them. 

By making fundamental connections between multiple concepts, children are able to understand the diverse world that they live in, its environments and the processes that affect them. They will gain an in-depth knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and physical and human processes so that they will then be equipped to articulate their own opinions on matters of the world, making informed choices. 


When our children leave us, they will be well equipped with the skills and knowledge to explore the world around them them an avid curiosity and they will have a greater understanding of their planet. We also intend for the children to develop an in-depth knowledge of our community and locality, developing a strong sense of place.  

Implement - What will our children learn?

Our Geography curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. If children are keeping up with the curriculum, they are deemed to be making good or better progress. The school environment also celebrates children's achievements in geography and demonstrate the subject's high status in the school. At Dane Royd Junior and Infant School, we are preparing our children to live in a constantly evolving world.


As Michael Palin said "Geography is the subject which holds the key to our future."

Children will leave Dane Royd as confident thinkers who can critically analyse information presented to them skills which will not only prepare them to continue their Geography journey in Key Stage 3, but that they can then continue to apply to any situation as global citizens.
