Great Kimble Church of England School

An Academy of the Great Learners Trust




As explained on our curriculum webpage, our Geography curriculum is based on Jonathan Lear’s ‘Guerrilla Curriculum’ idea. In the spring term, we teach Geography and this is our ‘Explore term.

Geography is taught within the EYFS through cross-curricular learning and topics. We aim to offer a high-quality geography education that will inspire a curiosity, fascination and Love of the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their Lives. We aim to equip our children with the knowledge about places, people, resources and natural and human environments together with an understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. Children will Learn about the importance of sustainability and how they can be a part of positive change and reform for the future and for our planet.

At Great Kimble, we use the Kapow Primary’s Geography Curriculum of learning. This aims to inspire pupils to become curious (show a love of learning) and explorative thinkers with a diverse knowledge of the world; in other words, to think like a geographer (live). We want pupils to develop the confidence to question and observe places, measure and record necessary data in various ways, and analyse and present their findings. Through their lessons, we aim to build an awareness of how Geography shapes our lives at multiple scales and over time. We hope to encourage pupils to become resourceful, active citizens who will have the skills to contribute to and improve the world around them.

Our curriculum encourages:

• A strong focus on developing both geographical skills and knowledge

• Critical thinking, with the ability to ask perceptive questions and explain and analyse evidence

• The development of fieldwork skills across each year group

• A deep interest and knowledge of pupils’ locality and how it differs from other areas of the world.

• A growing understanding of geographical concepts, terms and vocabulary


Knowledge Organisers 


An enquiry-based approach to learning will allow teachers to assess children against the National curriculum expectations for Geography. The impact of Kapow Geography’s scheme can be constantly monitored through both formative and summative assessment opportunities. Opportunities for children to present their findings using their geographical skills will also form part of the assessment process in each unit. After implementing Kapow Primary Geography, pupils should leave Great Kimble equipped with a range of skills and knowledge to enable them to study Geography with confidence at Key stage 3. We hope to shape children into curious and inspired geographers with respect and appreciation for the world around them alongside an understanding of the interconnection between the human and the physical.
