“Bringing Learning to Life”



Geography Intent Statement


At Therfield First School, we believe that high quality geography lessons inspire pupils’ curiosity and fascination about the world and their place within it. Our curriculum helps to provoke and provide answers about the natural and human aspects of the world, promoting empathy and their personal and collective responsibility.


Through a creative, multi-sensory curriculum, we use the local area and community to develop geographical skills and knowledge. We facilitate our pupils to gradually broaden their sense of scale from their immediate geography to the global. Our curriculum is designed to develop the knowledge and skills that are progressive, as well as transferable, deepening children’s understanding of the earths key physical and human processes.
