Open your eyes to our world, its people, places and culture. Geography at St Matthew's


At St Matthew’s, we aim to offer a high-quality geography education for our pupils, that will inspire curiosity and fascination for the world, its people and cultures. Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. Geography helps pupils to gain a sense of global awareness, explore different places as well as identifying features within our own country.


Our geography topics are aligned with The National Curriculum expectations. It is planned and delivered in a systemic and progressive way. Our topics are planned carefully and created to be relatable for our children, to inspire curiosity and develop a love of lifelong learning.

Our geography curriculum shows clear progression from reception to year 6, enabling children to recap and build upon previous knowledge and skills learnt in topics prior.


Geography at St Matthew’s is often taught discretely alongside history. In lessons, we work in various ways, including through practical and hands-on learning, where children are able to gain real life experiences. By the end of each topic, children will have a greater understanding and in-depth knowledge of the topic question.

Following our long term plan, children are able to discover a variety of places during their time here at St Matthew’s.
