  • Collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork
  • Interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
  • Communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.

Geography at Oake, Bradford and Nynehead




At Oake, Bradford and Nynehead Primary School, we intend to provide a rigorous and comprehensive Geography curriculum that fosters a deep understanding and appreciation of the world.

We aim to:

  • inspire curiosity, develop a sense of place, and enable pupils to become responsible global citizens.
  • ensure that every child develops the necessary knowledge, skills, and understanding to engage with the geographical concepts and themes outlined in the National Curriculum.
  • make Geography accessible to all children, regardless of their background or abilities.
  • promote cultural diversity and inclusivity, recognising the importance of valuing different perspectives and experiences.
  • help children develop an understanding of the significance of incorporating local, national, and global issues to create relevant and meaningful learning experiences.




  • The Geography curriculum is carefully planned, sequenced, and aligned with the National Curriculum and local context.
  • There is a clear progression of skills and knowledge, building upon prior learning and enabling children to deepen their understanding over time.
  • The curriculum includes opportunities for fieldwork, both within the local community and further afield, to enhance practical learning experiences and develop observational and investigative skills
  • Teachers deliver Geography lessons that are inclusive, inspire curiosity, and cater to the needs of all children, regardless of their starting points or abilities.
  • Children are exposed to a range of authentic and up-to-date geographical resources, such as maps, satellite images, photographs, and real-life case studies.
  • Opportunities for collaborative and cooperative learning foster Children's social and teamwork skills.
  • Formative and summative assessments are used to evaluate Children's progress and inform subsequent teaching.
  • Assessment focuses on both knowledge and skills, encompassing both recall and application of geographical concepts.




  • Children exhibit a genuine love for Geography, actively participating in lessons, expressing curiosity and enthusiasm about the subject matter.
  • Positive attitudes towards learning extend beyond the classroom, as children independently explore geographical topics and engage with online resources or books related to Geography.
  • Children demonstrate excellent subject knowledge, understanding key concepts, and being able to apply them both within Geography lessons and across the wider curriculum.
  • Our Geography curriculum contributes to the broader development of well-rounded individuals who are informed, responsible, and active citizens.
  • Children develop an awareness and appreciation of different cultures, traditions, and environments, fostering respect and empathy towards others.











Geography Week - Our Planet


We wanted to show the children how incredible our planet is with its diverse landscapes and unique creatures that rely on it to survive.


Each class was given a biome to study.

Children looked at:

Where it was in the world?

What it was like?

What lived there?

Why was it important?

How were humans affecting it?

What could be done to help?



We purchased some beautiful new books for the children to explore and develop their knowledge further.

At the end of the week, some of the parents came in to see what we had been doing.


Here are some photos of what the children did and some of the work.

We even had a visit from Exmoor Zoo and some of their amazing animals. I never thought I would see a meerkat in a classroom!
