Geography at Michael Drayton


Here at Michael Drayton Junior School, the teaching of Geography aims to nurture a fascination with people and places around the world, ensuring the children develop a tolerance towards different lifestyles and cultures and a locational understanding.


In the Geography curriculum, we look at a range of topics starting with the local area and the UK, this progresses onto Europe and other countries around the world such as India and Brazil. The children will make comparisons between these locations and the UK.


We start with an emphasis on physical geography allowing the children to fully grasp the notion of location and the different processes that shape the world we live in. This learning then progresses into human and environmental geography including opportunities for fieldwork.


The curriculum is strategically planned so that key concepts are revisited and built upon within lessons, across terms and throughout the years. This ensures secure retention of knowledge and vocabulary and therefore, developing a deeper understanding of the world our children live in.
