Geography

Our Geography Curriculum

At Holy Family we aim to inspire our pupils to ask and answer questions about the world in which they live. Through our vehicles and 5 key concepts we teach our children the knowledge and understanding they need to know about people, places and their environment, including physical and human processes.

Our 5 Key Geography Concepts

  • trade
  • community
  • interdependence
  • natural disaster
  • poverty

Our Curriculum Coverage

The whole school overarching theme of Communities in the Autumn term teachers and leaders focus on different communities around the globe.

Within each year group the children have opportunities to study different and revisit continents of the world.
