Primary School

Bright, Proud and Successful


At Bewley Primary School we strive to provide a geography curriculum that prepares our children to be Bright, Proud, and Successful individuals.

It is our Intent to:


Our Geography curriculum places an emphasis on learning opportunities targeted to help children progressively and sequentially gain knowledge and understanding of geographical content which is planned into each unit of work within and across year groups.

In our Early Years children learn about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects and living things. They talk about features of their own immediate environment and how environments can vary from one another. Children make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur, and talk about changes.

Children learn that the environment and living things are influenced by human activity. Children learn that their actions can make a difference in protecting the environment and making the world a better place. They will be able to describe some actions which people in their own community do that help to maintain the area they live in.

We make many planned cross curricular links to other subjects when delivering our geography curriculum and have included a local area study for each year group. This celebrates our locality. Visits to places “within Billingham and beyond” are used to develop children’s understanding of the world in which they live as well as drawing upon online research and use of atlases.
