At Fernvale, we aim to offer a high-quality geography education which inspires in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teachers equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. 



We have 4 core strands that run through our geography curriculum. Each strand has a progression in knowledge and skills, detailed in this document, that link the topic areas together. EYFS teach Geography through mathematics and ‘Understanding the World’.

We use the scheme My Rising Stars which teaches the 4 key concepts through its units of work. Each unit will have a key concept as its focus but will always incorporate others.

  • Locational Knowledge
  • Place Knowledge
  • Human and Physical Geography
  • Geographical Skills and Fieldwork
