Geography provokes and answers questions about the natural and human worlds. It develops knowledge of places and environments throughout the world, an understanding of maps.  It teaches a range of skills to collect and analyse data through fieldwork, interpret sources of geographical information and communicate geographical information in a variety of ways including maps and writing.

Geography is taught through a series of themes.  Pupils start learning about the locality (including Acton Park) and countries in Britain in Year 1 before moving on to the wider world (for example, Year 3 learn about Europe whilst Year 4 have a geography topic centred on the Amazon). Learning is enhanced by visitors (such as an Arctic explorer for Year 2 when they are learning about different climates) and trips (such as the Cutty Sark).
