Our Vision for Geography


Geography is the study of places and the relationships between people and their environments. Working as geographers, children at Birchwood Junior School learn about the diversity and connectivity of real people and places. Our geography curriculum is influenced by Forest Skies Dream Big powers.

Discover – through learning about new places and digging deeper into places we think we are familiar with

Reasoning – suggesting solutions to environmental issues and explaining why decisions might have been made

Empathise – walking in the shoes of others to find out about what places are like and how they are changing, learning about real people in real places

Ask Questions – helping to develop independent enquiry and pose their own ideas for investigation

Make mistakes – evaluating our own learning and suggesting how we could do better

Be Resilient – challenging ourselves and other to deepen our understanding through challenge questions

Imagine and create – working together to develop ideas and present fieldwork enquiries to an audience

Grow – becoming confident geographers who can link our understanding and ideas across the full curriculum


Our curriculum is outlined below but please feel free to pop into school any time and ask to speak with our Geography lead Miss Toyne. She is always more than welcome to answer any questions.

We are really proud to have been awarded the bronze Quality Mark by the Geographical Association in recognition of the improvements to the geography curriculum
