At Underwood West Academy, children revisit and build upon locational place knowledge, fieldwork skills and human and physical geography in each year group. Children’s geographical learning is structured with a focus on local geography in the autumn term, national geography in the spring term and global geography in the summer term, mirroring the history curriculum. This slowly builds outwards, from Crewe to London, to the UK, to Europe (including Russia), South America and Africa. The curriculums for geography and history have been designed in parallel to enhance the natural links between them in a way that is beneficial for each humanities subject. The children’s understanding of how their local area fits into the wider world is therefore gradually accrued.
Each unit is supported by a Knowledge Organiser which details the key facts, vocabulary and skills for each unit. Please scroll down to see each year group's curriculum and their and knowledge organisers.
