It is our aim to deliver a high-quality geography education where the children at Sherwood gain knowledge about the world around them.  Teaching will be inspirational and invoke the children's curiosity about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. 

Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. At Sherwood, we believe it is important to encourage children to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills.

Our Geography curriculum comprises of a number of strands

  •           Human and Physical Geography
  •           A Geographical Location Study
  •           Location and Place Knowledge
  •           Geographical Fieldwork

As children progress through school, they will revisit each of the geographic stands, allowing them to build progressively on prior knowledge and deepen their understanding of the world around them.

Your child's geographical education will start in the EYFS through the 'Understanding the World' strand.

Throughout their geographical journey at Sherwood, children will engage in a range of experiences, visits and field work to enhance their learning as well as reading a variety of maps, non-fiction texts across the curriculum and linked fiction texts.
