Geography intent

At Dalestorth Primary and Nursery School, we teach Geography by meeting the requirements of the national curriculum. Our aim is to develop children’s curiosity and fascination about the world and its people by teaching about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments together with an understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.  Geography is taught progressively throughout school, ensuring a build-up of knowledge, skills and age appropriate content. Pupils should develop their knowledge through asking, as well as responding to, geographical questions.

We will achieve high-quality learning by teaching Geography through a clear sequence of lessons which are designed to help pupils develop their understanding of:


  • The location of a locality;
  • The human and physical features of the locality;
  • Who lives in the locality and what life is like;
  • How the locality compares to our locality;
  • The environmental issues facing the locality based on physical and human geography.


Where appropriate, links are also made to ensure that children’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development is enhanced through geography.
