At Dane Royd we see the geography curriculum as fundamental in supporting our children in becoming global citizens who have a sound knowledge of the world on which they build year on year. Through a carefully thought out curriculum, topics engage children’s natural curiosity and fascinations about the world and its people. Topics allow for revisiting and embedding of previous knowledge, whilst affording the opportunity to acquire new understanding.

Teaching will equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
