St. Mary's Catholic Primary School


In Geography, we aim to help our children gain an understanding of the world in which they live. This includes the school’s environment which is beautifully suited to developing geographical skills. Our children are also given the opportunity to discover about cultures other than their own and places which provide a contrast to their familiar surroundings. Studies are enriched by enjoyable visits to a variety of places depending on the topic the children are learning about.  

We study the Year A & B topics, which you can find more information about below.

Throughout the children's topics, the teachers will provide opportunities for the children to use the outdoor learning facilities and the world around them to deepen their learning. 

EYFS Year A & B

Topics will vary depending on class interests.

The curriculum shall build upon children’s progress within the prime areas of learning (C&LPSED & PD) and development and the following specific areas:

Children at the expected level of development will:

  • Draw information from a simple map.
  • Understand that some places are special to members of their community.
  • Recognise similarities and differences between life in this country and life in other countries.
  • Explore the natural world around them.
  • Describe what they see, hear and feel outside.
