At Poppyfield Academy, we aim for a high-quality geography curriculum which will inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people.

Geography is about the world’s places, people, resources, natural and human environments and a deep grasp of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.

Geography is concerned with a knowledge about the world that deepens their understanding of the relationship between human and physical processes and the creation and use of land and environments as well as the changes over time. It will provide children with lifelong understanding of the Earth and its properties as conservationists and caretaker’s. We want our children to enjoy and love learning about geography by gaining knowledge and skills, not just through experiences in the classroom, but also with the use of fieldwork and educational visits.

In ensuring high standards of teaching and learning in geography, we implement a curriculum that is progressive throughout the whole school. Geography is taught as part of our NICER curriculum.
