Geography Curriculum

Mrs Cundick - Geography Lead

Our Geography Lead is Mrs Cundick. If you would like to discuss our Geography curriculum further, please do not hesitate to contact us.


At Templemoor we want to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our learners develop knowledge about their locality, the United Kingdom and the world. 


Our school uses the National Curriculum as the basis for its curriculum planning in geography. Geography is planned and taught through set half termly units of work. Children’s geographical learning starts with the familiar and slowly builds outwards, from the school, Sale, Manchester, to the UK and Africa. Their understanding of how their local area fits into the wider world is therefore gradually accrued.

Progression within the curriculum is clear: it starts with what is familiar to children and extends outwards. During their time at Templemoor the children are taught locational knowledge, place knowledge, human and physical geography and geographical skills and fieldwork.

Year 1 - Our School, Our Local Area, Our Country.

Year 2 - Magical Mapping, Our Wonderful World, Sensational Safari (Kenya)


Children will be confident geographers who have a sound knowledge of their local surroundings and the wider locality. They will be able to use observational skills in simple fieldwork activities.
