Geography - Knowledge and understanding of the world

The world around us is forever changing, the interaction between the physical and human processes contribute to an evolving landscape, these landscapes, as they change, offer challenges to people of different times affecting the complexities of their lives, leading to processes of evolution and a diversity of societies and relationships both past and present.

At Stanton in Peak, we have created a curriculum that equips children with skills of perceptive thinking, thoughtful questioning of observations and information, and the confidence to hypothesis and explore different perspectives. We believe these skills will inspire curiosity and fascination that will remain with our pupils for the rest of their lives. As the world grows their knowledge and understanding should grow with it.

Across the year groups our progression plan ensures we introduce a variety of learning in relation to place knowledge, locational knowledge and, the human and physical geography intrinsic to the understanding of the world in which we live and interlink this with geography skills.

Please look at our progression map to find out more about how we build and develop skills and knowledge through the National Curriculum's areas of study.

Please contact Miss Birkin ( if you have questions or would like to talk about any aspects of Geography at Stanton-in-Peak.

"It is I who made the earth and created mankind on it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts." (Isaiah 45:12)
