St Nicolas Geography Intent


At St. Nicolas, children will learn more and remember more so we have designed our curriculum to be progressive. We ensure that our sequential learning opportunities drives pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world helping them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments in an engaging and creative way.


Our ambitious high-quality geography education inspires in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.


Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time. 


Across each geographical topic that we study in school, our lessons are designed to investigate: 

  • Locational Knowledge 

  • Place Knowledge 

  • Human and Physical Geography 

  • Geographical Skills and Fieldwork
