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 concepts’:
      • ‘Location’

Where is this place?

      • ‘Region’

What are the distinctive characteristics of this place?

      • ‘Place’

What are the physical and/or cultural attributes of a place?

      • Density, Dispersion, Pattern

How are things arranged?  Is the arrangement regular?  Is there a pattern to the distribution?

      • Spatial Interaction

How has an event in one region affected another area?

        • Grounding in core disciplinary knowledge, and the ability to approach challenging, geographically-valid enquiry questions
