At Ditton Primary, Geography objectives are taken from the National Curriculum and planned in creative, cross- curricular and engaging ways for pupils to learn. We believe that geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

A range of topics are covered in each year group, twice throughout the school year to enable pupils to learn about the world and local areas they are surrounded by – often comparing similarities, differences and exploring human and physical geographical features. 

Pupils at Ditton Primary school enjoy making links to prior learning and we find it essential that topics studied are linked to real-life contexts to ensure maximum engagement and participation within lessons. 

Long Term Planning

We teach our Geography in topics. Geography topics usually last for half a term but Geography is not taught every term due to our rolling programme.

An overview of our School Curriculum can be found on the Curriculum page of our website. Please look for our Long Term Planning document.  Below is the information contained within our Long Term Planning document about our Geography Curriculum. 

Key Stage 1 topics

Key Stage 2 topics

Knowledge Organisers

For each Geography topic taught, we have Knowledge Organisers. These provide specific details of the content of each Geography topic. The organisers give details of the facts and information the children need to know and understand, in the order they will be taught, together with any specific vocabulary. These are shared with the children and are refered to throughout topics. To view any of our Knowledge Organisers, please click on the links below.

Learning Overviews

Each half term teachers produce Learning Overviews. These give details of everything being taught in a half-term. These Learning Overviews are published on our Class Pages of this website. 

Please note, due to our rolling programme of Learning Themes, not every Foundation Subject is taught every half-term. However, be the end of each academic year, all the necessary content will have been covered by each year group.
