Geography Curriculum


The geography curriculum at Marlborough Road provides children with a:

  • Relevant, coherent, progressive knowledge of the world and an ability to find their place in it, explored through the lenses of geographical ‘vertical concepts’:
  • Location and Place

Where is this place?

What are the human and physical characteristics of this place?

What is the interaction between people and place?

  • Geographical Scale

The location is seen at a local to global scale.

Cause, effects and responses can vary in their scale.

What are the similarities and differences at the different scales – local, regional, national, global. 

  • Making Connections

What are the connections between the human and physical worlds?

How does one event affect another?

  • Grounding in core disciplinary knowledge, and the ability to approach challenging, geographically-valid questions:
            • Geographical skills
            • Fieldwork enquiry
            • Identify patterns and links
            • Using examples and key vocabulary
